We’re looking for an experienced engagement specialist with strong project management capability and a proven track record of delivering staff or volunteer focussed projects. You’ll be responsible for designing what we do next, helping us to find the right supplier and product or approach, and leading the project through to implementation.

What it's like to work here

We don't want to stop at 5.5 million members and we want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy access to our places, so we need to reach new audiences in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them without losing the hearts and minds of those that are already with us.
