The National Museum of the Royal Navy is ten years old. We tell the epic story of the Royal Navy and its fighting arms. Our vision is to be the world’s most inspiring naval museum, enabling people to enjoy, learn and engage with this epic story and its impact in shaping the modern world.

With our headquarters in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard we have grown rapidly in our first decade; from 325,000 to 1.3 million visitors, our turnover has also grown from £4 to £20m. Our story is told through the largest historic fleet in the world, from the Nation’s Flagship HMS Victory to the heroic Falkland war landing craft Foxtrot 7 – we care for capital ships, frigates, submarines, airplanes and nuclear bombs. Our museums have truly national reach with sites in Portsmouth, Gosport, Yeovilton, Belfast and Hartlepool with exciting plans for more naval museums to join the group.

Your new role.

You will be key, with income budgets of £10m your teams will deliver the profits that make all this happen. Leading the Commercial Operations Teams across all our locations you will inspire a team of 300 colleagues to ensure our visitors have a great day out and drive our profits growth.

For the National Museum of the Royal Navy our commercial operations touch everyone, from admissions sales, to shops, cafes, hires and events; your portfolio and influence is strategic and essential. You will report to key stakeholder groups, attend board meetings and will often find yourself as the voice of the NMRN on a national scale.

What will you need?

The ability to lead people and know instinctively both what makes a great day out and what makes a profit. You will live our values and behaviours and demonstrate to others how to use these to achieve the highest standards. You will be able to demonstrate a track record of high performance and progression in a complex multi-venue organisation. You will be able to see through the distractions to the heart of the matter and implement decisions that affect rapid change.

This role is based in Portsmouth with travel to other NMRN sites.
