The Tank Museum

The Tank Museum was founded in 1923 as a teaching resource for engineers and soldiers of the Tank Corps. Over the last 80 years, the Museum has dramatically transformed from a training aid for the army to a 21st century Museum aspiring towards access and excellence for all.


Based at Bovington Camp, the home of the tank, the museum boasts the most comprehensive collection of armoured fighting vehicles in the world. In addition, the Museum has a very strong supporting collection of medals, photographs, film, sound recordings, fine art, books, weapons, models and memorabilia.  Current displays tell the story of the tank from its inception in 1915 to the current war in Afghanistan. The entire collection has Designated Status.


Over 200,000 people visit the Tank Museum every year where we bring the history of tanks and tank crew to life…Supported by the world’s best collection of tanks and action packed live displays. The Events Team play a vital role in managing and delivering first class events and increasing revenue in the museum to reinvest in the collection. 

The Events Team is part of the Operations group, working closely with catering, visitor services/retail and facilities/operations.


The Event Operations Coordinator plays a crucial part in assisting in the delivery of all Museum, public, corporate and private events, and is responsible for ensuring a seamless service with clients, visitors and internal customers to deliver the highest standards on all events.  


Our biggest event of the year is Tankfest, which attracts over 25,000 visitors and accounts for 15% of the Museum’s turnover.


The position holder is responsible for providing a range of support to the Events Manager & operations team in coordinating all aspects of events.
