The V&A is the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance, home to 2.3m objects spanning 5,000 years of human ingenuity from around the world. Founded in 1851 to raise the standard of British design and make works of art available to all, today the V&A’s purpose is to champion creative industry, inspire the next generation and spark everyone’s imagination.

As the V&A’s footprint in East London grows with the reimagining of the Museum of Childhood and the opening of new sites in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Finance team needs to continue to evolve to support the multi-site group of museums.

  • Leading, managing, motivating and being responsible for the development of the Finance Operations team;
  • Developing the relationship with the wider organisation, delivering effective communication and training to ensure Finance Operations processes are well understood.

The successful candidate will be someone who is eager to learn, flexible in approach but firm when necessary, who can work on their own initiative and thrives when thinking and acting proactively. You will possess strong interpersonal and influencing skills, capable of effective negotiating and building relationships with a wide range of stakeholders. Enthusiasm for the sector is a must.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a high-calibre finance professional looking to make an impact in the sector and will provide an excellent platform in your career.
