Fulham Palace is a truly remarkable place. For centuries, this Grade I Listed building situated in extensive grounds by the River Thames was the country residence of the Bishops of London. The Palace is now managed by the Fulham Palace Trust, which is inspired by a vision to restore our nationally significant historic buildings and garden to their original beauty and to provide outstanding facilities for the local community and visitors from farther afield.
Fulham Palace Trust has recently completed a major restoration project. This has transformed the gardens and Tudor quadrangle to their former glory and developed a new museum and exhibition space to tell the fascinating stories of the Palace over its 6,000 year history. We have a lively activity programme, including volunteering, community archaeology and events for families and young people. Alongside our core activities, the Palace hosts a range of commercial events each year as well as weddings and private functions. In addition, the Trust has a number of commercial and private tenants.
Salary: £28,000 pa (full time, 40 hours per week)
