Trustee vacancy – London Canal Museum

The London Canal Museum is an independent and self-financing museum in London’s vibrant Kings Cross area, and we are currently looking for Trustees to join our Council of Management

The museum is a registered charity but must be managed as a business as we receive no subsidy.

We are looking for up to three new trustees and would welcome particular skills, including but not limited to the following. Applicants with knowledge or experience in one or more these areas are particularly welcome:

  • Visitor Attraction Management
  • Marketing & communication, PR & promotion, including digital
  • General management experience in a commercial organisation
  • Education (in schools or museums)
  • Museum collection & curation, exhibition management
  • Grant & funding applications, fundraising.

An interest in canals/waterways and/or London industrial history is very welcome but by no means essential.

What are we looking for:

  • A self-starter, hands-on in your specific area of expertise, and able to turn your hand to other tasks
  • Enthusiasm to contribute and work as part of the team, and as a valuable member of the Council of Management
  • Commitment of sufficient time dedicated to the role
  • You must have a managerial outlook and a skill-set appropriate to the running of a self-supporting visitor attraction that depends on income earned.

Closing date 31 May 2022.
