The Gurkha Museum Trust is the guardian of the rich Gurkha heritage of over twenty former and antecedent Gurkha regiments and units that have served the British Crown for more than 200 years - a heritage which continues to evolve. Today, it represents four serving Gurkha regiments and corps, the Gurkha Staff and Personnel Support Company and the Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas. Amongst Britain’s military museums it is unique as it tells the story of a soldier who is not a citizen of the United Kingdom and whose country, Nepal, has never formed part of Britain’s late Empire or the Commonwealth.
The Gurkha Museum Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registration No 1169920) and is Arts Council England Accredited. The Museum is located in Peninsula Barracks, Winchester in Hampshire along with five other military museums. It is open throughout the year and receives about 12,000 visitors annually. In addition to the permanent exhibition, reserve collection and outstanding archive, the Museum is fully engaged with education and outreach programmes, lectures, events, trading, other commercial activities and support to all in achieving its aims and objectives.
The role will require flexibility by the post holder to ensure effective delivery of services by the Museum.
