Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.

The RIBA champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and our members. 2014 is an exciting year for us: we are opening two new galleries in London and Liverpool.  These galleries will complement our architecture galleries at the V&A and will showcase our world class library collections and promote architecture to the general public.

We are looking for a Head of Exhibitions and Events to develop and produce a national outreach programme targeted at the general public. You will be working with major partners such as the V&A, BBC, British Council and others to deliver a creative cultural programme of exhibitions, talks, films and events in London, Liverpool and, through touring, across the UK. 

Your programme will deliver great footfall, media attention and comment, and generate excitement about architecture on the national stage.
