Role summary

The world is changing and so are we. Help us make an impact for future generations.

The natural world is evolving fast and we’re making critical choices at a time when people are more disconnected than ever before from their physical environment. As a world-leading scientific institution and an awe-inspiring, iconic visitor attraction, the Natural History Museum is powerfully placed to help individuals, governments and society at large make better decisions for the future.

The Museum has set out an ambitious five year strategic plan to respond to global scientific challenges and engage society in that mission, and a succession of exciting initiatives are transforming the Museum’s experience both within and outside its walls -nationally, globally and digitally.

A high performing Development and Communications team is central to supporting delivery of the Museum’s vision and an Executive Board position places Development and Communications at the heart of the Museum’s strategic planning and implementation. With our successful track record in campaign fundraising including the landmark Darwin Centre in September 2009 and the Hintze Hall redevelopment in 2017, our Royal Patron and influential supporters, the Museum is ready to take Development to the next stage.

We are currently seeking an ambitious and talented Executive Assistant to support the Director of Development and Communications in leading this dynamic Group at the Museum to deliver a step-change in Development activities and income and the Museum’s positioning with wider stakeholders.

You will be an excellent communicator with meticulous attention to detail and a proactive, confident and friendly attitude. You will have excellent administrative, organisational and logistical skills and significant experience of providing executive support to a senior manager or director. You will have strong skills in multi-tasking, the flexibility to work dynamically, to make decisions, solve problems and navigate a changing environment. You will enjoy working autonomously and as part of a team and will be comfortable with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders. You may have worked in this area already or you may have worked in a fast-paced customer service, media or legal environment and want to move into the cultural sector. You will have an appetite to learn and develop and be keen to play a role in a high performing team.

The successful candidate would ideally start mid-March.
