Founded in 1753, the British Museum’s collection spans over two million years of human history. Visitors can travel the world and experience the collections from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the ancient world, including iconic objects such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, the Lewis Chessmen and Egyptian mummies.

The Role 

This is an exciting opportunity to lead a new team and develop finance, process improvement and management skills in a rapidly modernising and world-renowned setting. As Finance Manager you will provide a first class accounts service to the diverse departments within the British Museum group. You will assist with the review and strengthening of processes, thinking creatively to propose and implement improvements to all aspects of the Museum’s financial administration, ranging from setting up cash arrangements for an excavation in Sudan to monitoring controls around high profile blockbuster exhibitions like Vikings: life and legend.

To join our team you will be a superb communicator with excellent judgement who is able to juggle conflicting demands and prioritise workload effectively. You will have a passion for the Museums and Galleries sector and will clearly demonstrate an enthusiastic ‘can-do’ attitude. Educated to degree level, you will be a qualified ACA accountant with wide experience and understanding of the importance of a strong internal controls environment.

Closing date: Friday 11th April 2014, Midday
