The Museum is looking for a Public Events Executive to work with and support the Museum Public Events Manager to both increase visitor numbers and maximise income generation through the successful development and management of a programme of public events.

The ideal candidate will be creative, highly organised, flexible, pro-active and have lots of initiative and energy. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills with a high standard of both verbal and written English are essential requirements as is a high level of client service.  Strong proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel is also required.  

This is a great opportunity to work in a high profile, National Museum at a busy and exciting time, and make a very real contribution to its future income generation and visitor experiences.
