About the Museum
The British Museum is unique in bringing together the cultures of the world under one roof, spanning continents and oceans. Its eight million objects allow us to explore the extraordinary diversity of human cultures, from small communities to vast empires, to discover the many forms and expressions human beings have given to every aspect of life, and to realise how closely they are interconnected.
This context makes for a fascinating and inspiring environment in which to further develop your career in Human Resources and this is an ideal time to join us as our function continues to evolve.
