Following Arts Council England investment in the museum’s future through the Museum Resilience Fund, we have a great opportunity for an enthusiastic, professional and ambitious Communications & Marketing Manager to join our team and make a real difference to the museum.

The People’s History Museum is the home of ideas worth fighting for.
