Join the Team

Thackray Museum of Medicine might have one of the country’s most important collections of medical history but what makes us special is our people. Together, our Trustees, volunteers, staff and collaborators represent a diverse and dynamic team of unique talents, united by a common purpose. We value independently-minded people who enrich our museum with fresh thinking and new experiences and we are far more interested in what you bring us as an individual than in how many letters you have after your name.

If that sounds like the sort of team you would like to join, keep an eye on this page for current opportunities.
