The Garden Museum requires a new Finance Manager to join its team.
It is the only Museum in Britain dedicated to the history of gardens. It was set up in order to rescue from dereliction an ancient church in central London in which John Tradescant, gardener to King Charles I, is buried, and in the summer of 2017 re-opened after an £8 million restoration, reconstruction and extension, which put on display a precious collection of art and artefacts and opened new facilities for education. Since re-opening, over 120,000 people have visited.
The Museum is an independent charity and exists through a combination of visitors, commercial income from its café and venue hire, subscriptions by Friends and patrons, and donations.

To ensure that the accounting systems are kept up to date, cashflow is actively managed and that monthly management accounts are produced in a timely basis. To be responsible for maintaining the financial records of the charity and its trading subsidiary. To be a senior member of the management team and to be involved in planning, analysis and decision-making.
