Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, the Banqueting House, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
We currently have an immediate vacancy in the Commercial Events team for an Events Executive based at HM Tower of London.

Your attendance at some events will also be required as you will be responsible for ensuring that all details of the event are in place on the day of the event and that all the client's requirements are met.
