A New Chief Executive for the Thackray

exterior of a grand Victorian buildingAre you ready to lead a museum that saves lives as well as changing them?

Based within the grounds of St. James’s University Hospital, our newly refurbished Museum is now widely recognised as the UK’s leading independent medical museum. We are acclaimed as one of the most innovative and community-focussed museums in the region; during the COVID pandemic we were proud to have been the first museum in the UK to  host a vaccination centre and the first to host regular social prescribing clinics.

Having been short-listed for the Arts Fund Museum of the Year in 2021, with a brand that is fast gathering recognition among the public, media and stakeholders, now is a fantastic opportunity to lead the museum into the future as our new CEO. I look forward to welcoming you into our Thackray family!

Use the menus to find out more about the background to the museum and this opportunity and details of how to apply. We can’t wait to hear from you.
