What from today will be important tomorrow?

With £7.5m investment in the future of the museum, ambitions plans for new galleries and a contemporary exhibition programme, there’s never been a better time to join the team at the National Media Museum. We’ve recently re-focussed our attention on our core photographic collections, including diverse and significant material in the Kodak collection and the Daily Herald archive, and we’re opening them up to the public and for research like never before.

You will play a key role in shaping our approach to photography and its changing place in the world today, updating and enhancing our collections and telling their story. You will have a great understanding photography and photographic technology but, even more importantly, you will enjoy explaining this to others in accessible and engaging ways.
