We are looking for an authentic and collaborative Head of Finance who is interested in joining a leading NSW Government agency focused on creating a living future for the past so that our visitors can experience Sydney’s past as if they had lived it themselves.

What we do
Museums of History NSW (MHNSW) is the first cultural institution in the state with history as its core mandate. MHNSW provides public access to government archives, objects, materials, buildings, places and stories that shape the historic, social, political and cultural identity of NSW.  As a custodian and storyteller, MHNSW is committed to preserving and presenting our state’s unique history and bringing its stories to life through diverse voices and viewpoints. We place history before us not behind us, making it immersive, discoverable and relevant through interpretation, exhibitions, public programs and online resources.

MHNSW brings together the museums, historic houses and associated collections previously in the care of Sydney Living Museums with the vast collection of more than 13 million items held by the former NSW State Archives. This includes one of the world’s most complete and important collections documenting colonisation.

Alongside Museums of History NSW is the State Records Authority NSW (SRANSW) which focuses on record keeping standards, regulation, advice, education and policy.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join us at MHNSW as we write the future of history!

What you’ll do with us
This role will manage and direct the Finance team to provide high level financial advice and accurate information to NSW Treasury, Trustees and Senior Management, to ensure MHNSW manages its budget prudently and in compliance with the Public Finance & Audit Act 1983 and relevant statutory and Australian Accounting Standards.
