Job Description:
The Natural History Museum has embarked on an ambitious and exciting masterplan in order to deliver its vision of a future where both people and the planet thrive. The Gardens Programme plays a significant role within this and will radically change our visitor welcome, enhance visitor access and engagement on-site and catalyse national action in support of the UK’s biodiversity. Partnerships will be central to our approach, with relationships being built across the UK, including with national biodiversity-focused organisations, universities, youth organisations, museums and schools.

Key elements of the programme include:

• Transformation of the five-acre site surrounding the Natural History Museum: opening up new green spaces and reinterpreting the site in order to provide a coherent and enjoyable visitor experience that introduces our five million+ visitors to the Museum’s key themes
• A UK-wide learning programme including innovative Citizen Science projects, school and family activities and new digital experiences to connect audiences to the natural world
• A UK-wide skills development programme including the development of new volunteering and apprenticeship opportunities, and training and resources to support amateur naturalists and UK biodiversity professionals
• An urban biodiversity monitoring and habitat management programme, including creation of accessible tools to help document and manage wildlife in the UK’s towns and cities

The Head of Gardens Activities will have responsibility for the co-ordination and oversight of all activities beyond the capital build, holding the vision for these outputs and ensuring alignment with the overall project vision and capital build, Museum Strategy, business plans, audience needs and ongoing operations.

The post holder will work with teams from across the Museum including Science, Commercial, Development, Digital, Communications, Learning and Audiences and National.

The post holder will work closely with the Programme Management team and the Project Managers to ensure the successful delivery of this exciting programme and will act as a key spokesperson for the project in order to fully realise support – from funders, corporate audiences, Trustees and staff, partners and the public.

To deliver this we’re looking for a high performing leader who can mobilise teams and support them to deliver imaginative, creative and audience focussed experiences of a standard expected from world-leading museums. This role primarily reports into the Head of Exhibitions, Learning and Outreach, but also has responsibility for reporting to the Director of Engagement the SRO of the Programme.

Fixed Term Appointment to September 2020 with the possibility for extension (subject to funding).
