The National Motor Museum Trust is a charitable organisation dedicated to preserving and promoting motoring history. It has a world famous collection of vehicles and associated motoring items, many of which are on display in the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

The board is looking to strengthen skills in the areas of stakeholder engagement, income generation and fundraising, museum and archives management, education and learning, financial management and reaching out to the historic motoring movement.

We also welcome applications from those who have the skills, time and interest but who prefer to become advisors or ambassadors for the Museum rather than formally take on trustee responsibilities.
