Director (Chief Executive)
Association of Independent Museums

Job Description

Looking for a role that makes a significant contribution to the cultural life of the UK? The Association of Independent Museums (AIM) is a national, influential and successful membership charitable organisation supporting over a 1,000 independent museums, galleries and heritage organisations, including some of the UK’s best known museums.

We're seeking a strong, commercial and innovative new Director to build on the support we offer our members, championing and enhancing the Association’s strategic agenda and influence amongst funders, policy-makers, sector leads and government bodies.

Your strategic leadership and detailed understanding will be required to support our members, not least helping to identify sustainable solutions in the face of current economic challenges.  You will lead the diplomatic positioning of these challenges at the highest level.

Our ideal candidate will have a genuine and evidential commitment towards diversity and inclusion, demonstrate integrity and present evidence of strong but sensitive commercial discipline. You will have a track record of high level but empathetic leadership, driving continuous improvement in an organisation of a similar size and complexity, and of working within a politically complex environment with a number of diverse, powerful stakeholders.

AIM has an office base at Ellesmere Port (National Waterways Museum), Cheshire, CH65 4FW, at which the Director will be required to work for circa three days per week, subject to other UK-wide commitments.
