Museum interior panorama

Join the London Transport Museum team, the world’s leading museum of urban transport, and help us use the story of transport to encourage, enrich and inspire. No other capital city is defined and shaped so much by its transport as London, and the Museum and its collection are a window into the past, present and future of how transport keeps London moving, working and growing, and makes life in our city better.

We are a small team enough for you to make an immediate impact. But our reach is large enough for you to make a difference. If you are interested in joining the London Transport Museum team, our current job vacancies are listed below:

Battle Bus Apprentice

We are looking to appoint an apprentice to support the development and delivery of its current Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) funded project. The project began with the restoration of an early twentieth-century B-type bus. The bus is now the foundation of a learning and outreach programme linked to the First World War commemorative anniversaries and will continue until the end of 2018.

The project offers inspiring learning activities for a range of audiences. Programme activities include volunteer projects, development of exhibition content and the planning and delivery of public events; all of which link closely to the story of the B-type bus, and the First World War.

The apprenticeship is designed to offer an alternative route for young people aged 18 - 25 to access a career in the cultural heritage sector. It is, therefore, not open to anyone with a qualification higher than Level 3 (e.g. we cannot accept applications from anyone who has a qualification above A Level standard).

Programme activities include Young Volunteer projects and Route into Work; a pre-employment training course and skills and employability events, all of which link closely with the wider work of the museum and its collection.

The apprenticeship is designed to offer an alternative route for young people aged 18 - 25 to access a career in the cultural heritage sector. It is, therefore, not open to anyone with a qualification higher than Level 3 (e.g. we cannot accept applications from anyone who has a qualification above A Level standard).
