As Aerospace Bristol - home of the last Concorde - looks set to top 100,000 visitors to its museum this year, making it the most successful year since before the pandemic, the charity that runs the museum has announced it is creating a number of new roles to support its growth and help with a range of upcoming events.

In the next few weeks, the charity will be recruiting for a visitor experience & retail manager, fundraising manager, operations manager, site managers and marketing roles.

It expects to announce further roles beyond that, and the museum is also looking for volunteers to support the exhibitions and array of activities on offer to visitors.

Adam Jones, head of marketing and commercial operations at Aerospace Bristol, said: “We’re thrilled to have so many visitors coming through our doors, exploring and enjoying Bristol’s rich aerospace history.

"We’ve worked really hard throughout and since the pandemic, so it’s incredibly rewarding to see that paying off and the positive response we’re getting from our visitors.

"We are expecting to hit over 100,000 visitors this year, which is truly phenomenal.

“It’s great to be expanding our team with a whole host of new roles and we can’t wait to welcome more people in to help us as we continue to grow.”

Aerospace Bristol has had a busy year of events including a hugely successful half-term programme of family activities that saw visitors making the most of a number of new exhibits and activities, including a brand-new Concorde exhibition, Concorde: End of an Era, and the introduction of new bitesize family Concorde tours.

Later this month sees Aerospace Bristol celebrating the 20th anniversary of Concorde’s last ever flight (26 November) before getting fully into the festive spirit with the launch of its first ever Aerospace Bristol Christmas Workshop in December.
