Re-opened after a £23.75 million transformation, the National Army Museum has a mission to tell the story of our Army and the people who have served in it. Through five thematic galleries and our innovative exhibition and events programme, the public can explore what it's like to be a soldier, find out why we fought in conflicts (past and present), and discover the impact the Army has had on our society.
We are seeking to appoint a Facilities Officer who will work closely with the Head of Facilities in delivering both hard and soft facilities management and the visitor experience functions across the National Army Museum estate. The successful candidate will act as the focal point for the day-to-day management of all health and safety, facilities-related and security aspects of the Museum’s operations.
A demonstrable knowledge and practical experience of building services and current Health and Safety practice is essential. Paramount to the role is the ability to show initiative, be organised and have a 'hands-on' attitude.
