  • Establish and build effective relationships with the TFL business functions
  • Lead the Museum’s user training and engagement work
  • Deliver a robust financial control environment across the organisation 
  • Work with TFL tax teams to oversee the Museum’s tax and Gift Aid
  • Review and supervise team work including journals and balance sheet reconciliations.


In return for your commitment and expertise, you will enjoy excellent benefits and scope to grow. Rewards include:

  • Final salary pension scheme
  • Free travel for you on the TfL network
  • A 75% discount on National Rail Season Ticket and interest free loan
  • 30 days annual leave plus public and bank holidays
