The Foundling Museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery, and celebrates the ways in which artists of all disciplines have helped to improve children’s lives for over 275 years.

In addition to displaying the Foundling Hospital’s art collection and archives, our programme of regular public events includes exhibitions, displays, weekly lunchtime concerts, talks, performances, workshops and drop-in family activities.

The Museum has a small team of around 20 staff. Roles range from curatorial and marketing, through to learning and development. We are committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from everyone looking to work in museums in London.

We are unable to accept speculative applications or CVs but please check the website regularly for suitable positions.
