Who we are
The object of the charity is to promote, encourage, maintain, improve and advance education of the public in the life and works of Charles Dickens and to establish and maintain the property at 48 Doughty Street in the London Borough of Camden as a Museum to house and preserve all articles having connection with Charles Dickens.
The Charles Dickens Museum is the leading centre for the study, appreciation and enjoyment of Charles Dickens’s life and work. With over 100,000 items comprising furniture, personal effects, paintings, prints, photographs, letters, manuscripts, and rare editions, the collection is significant for its breadth and depth. A temporary exhibition programme enhances and complements the Museum’s permanent displays, and we offer a range of learning and engagement opportunities.
At this time, we are looking for skills and experience in museum management and accreditation, as well as people with legal and finance expertise. We would also welcome applications from people who live or work in the neighbourhood of the Museum (Bloomsbury, Holborn, King’s Cross / St Pancras).
The Charles Dickens Museum recognises the value of diversity and is keen to more closely reflect the wide range of people who visit the Museum. We celebrate the role it plays in the creation of an inclusive workplace culture and thrive on the range of experience and insight diversity brings to our Museum. We want to broaden the diversity of our Board and welcome candidates who can contribute greater diversity of representation and thinking, including Black, Asian, and minority ethnic people, LGBT+ people, people with disabilities and those with experience of socio-economic disadvantage.
