Visitor Services Assistant

The Tank Museum

National Minimum Wage
Closing date
17 Aug

The Tank Museum brings the story of tanks and their crews to life, with the world’s best collection of tanks in modern, awe-inspiring exhibitions.

The museum houses some 300 vehicles, representing every major conflict since the First World War. Our moving exhibitions tell the story of this British invention; from the mud of the Somme, to the beaches of Normandy and the deserts of Iraq – featuring powerful stories from the soldiers that fought in them.

Around 200,000 people visit Dorset’s largest indoor attraction each year, with the annual TANKFEST event drawing visitors from across the globe. The Tank Museum has a global online reach, with a large supporter base and following on a range of social media platforms.

This is underpinned by the outstanding national importance of The Tank Museum’s collections and the expertise of those who care for them. Alongside vehicles, the collections include medals, images, documents, personal papers, books, weapons and memorabilia.

The museum is situated in Bovington which is regarded as the ‘home of the tank’, as it was here that some of the first tank crews were trained during the First World War. It remains home to the Royal Armoured Corps today. The museum was founded in 1923 as a teaching resource for the Tank Corps. Over the past decade, the museum has transformed itself into a leading 21st century military museum.

As museum of the Royal Tank Regiment and Royal Armoured Corps, The Tank Museum is a registered charity which has been part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio since 2018.
