This is a key leadership position reporting to the Director and growing the team to deliver real impact across our diverse target audiences. Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade 1 listed ‘country’ house of architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. Its adjacent contemporary Gallery hosts a programme of ambitious and challenging exhibitions of art, architecture and design.
