Enjoying everything the Coventry Transport Museum has to offer

Work at the Museum

Coventry Transport Museum is no ordinary transport museum.

Displaying the largest collection of British road transport in the world, the collection includes over 550 cars, motorcycles and bicycles and 25,000 models. The collection represents Coventry’s unique heritage as the birthplace of British road transport. With everything from bone rattling cycles to thrilling land speed record breakers, the Museum is regarded as one of the leading visitor attractions in the West Midlands, welcoming nearly half a million visitors a year.

Coventry Transport Museum is part of the Culture Coventry charitable trust - occasionally we need to recruit new staff to the team, and we look for self-motivated and forward-thinking people. Even if you are based behind the scenes, you need to be comfortable working with or around visitors in an environment where creating the right atmosphere is everything. Everyone in the team plays an active part in delivering our fantastic attraction to visitors.
