Brooklands Museum is on the site of the world’s first purpose built motor racing circuit and the most productive aircraft factories in Europe in the twentieth century.

Our aim in coming years is to bring out its interest and relevance to the wider public.

It is an exciting time to join the museum. A new CEO started earlier this year, and much of the site will be reinterpreted and developed over the coming years, building on the extremely successful new £8m development of the Brooklands Aircraft Factory and Flight Shed exhibitions, completed last year.

The ideal candidate will have a good knowledge of motor sport and / or aviation collections, with a background in engineering and experience of working collections, as using collections is a key principle of the museum. Experience of working with a large team of enthusiastic, knowledgeable volunteers would be helpful.
