Background information
The Florence Nightingale Museum Trust was established as an independent charity in 1983 and opened to the public in 1989.  The museum is located in the grounds of St Thomas' Hospital at the heart of the cultural regeneration taking place on the South Bank.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to join a new team in a modernized and redesigned museum, dedicated to promoting the Life and work of Florence Nightingale.

Florence Nightingale became a living legend as the 'Lady with the Lamp'. When she died in 1910, aged 90, she was famous around the world. But who was the real Florence Nightingale? The Florence Nightingale Museum follows her story and uncovers a woman of many talents, as well as flaws. The new museum opened in May 2010 after a £1.4million refurbishment. Visitors travel through three pavilions which take them on a journey through the life and times of Florence Nightingale, from her Victorian childhood to the Crimean War and on to her years as an ardent campaigner.

The Front of House is a small, enthusiastic and hardworking team.  Applicants are required to work a minimum of three days across a seven day week, with no fixed Rota, so flexibility is essential.   Demonstrate excellent interpersonal communication skills and experience in customer services, as well as an interest in the arts and cultural heritage.

For an application form and further details please email catherine@florence-nightingale.co.uk. Please telephone or email to request a hard copy application.
