Passion for heritage… for history… for delivering an extraordinary visitor experience

To tell the story of The Historic Dockyard Chatham is to tell a story of British innovation and how passion, vision, grit and hard work secured prosperity and launched the world’s greatest naval power.

The Historic Dockyard is a remarkable place.  Remarkable people made it the place it is today and we need remarkable people to join us to help deliver the next chapter of the story.

As we close the doors on another successful season, which included the launch of Command of the Oceans, we are looking for remarkable people with a passion for heritage, for history and for delivering an extraordinary visitor experience to join our team in 2017 and beyond.

The Historic Dockyard Chatham offers unrivalled access to a place that built the ships that shaped the world, and the stories of the people who made them.  It’s the most complete dockyard from the age of sail anywhere in the world.  It’s a place like no other and as part of The Historic Dockyard team you have a unique opportunity to play a vital role.
