Location: London

The world is changing and so are we. Help us make an impact for future generations.

The natural world is evolving fast and we're making critical choices at a time when people are more disconnected than ever before from their physical environment. As a world-leading scientific institution and an awe-inspiring, iconic visitor attraction, the Natural History Museum is powerfully placed to help individuals, governments and society at large make better decisions for the future.

The Museum has set out an ambitious five year strategic plan to respond to global scientific challenges and engage society in that mission, and a succession of exciting initiatives are transforming the Museum's experience both within and outside its walls -nationally, globally and digitally.

A high performing Development and Communications team is central to supporting delivery of the Museum’s vision and an Executive Board position places Development and Communications at the heart of the Museum’s strategic planning and implementation. With our successful track record in campaign fundraising including the landmark Darwin Centre in September 2009 and the Hintze Hall redevelopment in 2017, our Royal Patron and influential supporters, the Museum is ready to take Development to the next stage.

The Special Events Coordinator will assist with the delivery of an expanding annual programme of events which support the delivery of the Museum’s objectives, chiefly in engaging and stewarding a wide range of Museum stakeholders including donors at all levels, Government ministers and civil servants, statutory and research funders, influencers and advocates.

The role will actively assist the wider Events team in the planning, execution and follow-up of annual events, with a particular emphasis on leading the delivery of x6 Early Morning Views. In addition, the position will support the team with all administrative tasks, including coordinating mailouts, raising invoices, liaising with suppliers, managing RSVPs and data entry.

Positive outcome includes supporting cultivation and stewardship across fundraising, as well as developing and maintaining relationships with key public figures and media contacts, promoting the Museum as best in class and leader in our field.

The role requires a highly organised individual with excellent communication skills and a high level of attention to detail. A motivated self-starter, who has a creative approach to problem solving with the ability to work on several complex tasks simultaneously whilst remaining calm under pressure.
