Based in west London, Gunnersbury Estate (2026) CIC is an exciting new, social enterprise. Established with the support of the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow, Gunnersbury CIC has taken on the management of the 75 hectare Gunnersbury Park and relaunched the museum occupying the newly refurbished grade II listed Gunnersbury Park House.

Currently under construction, a further major investment by the councils and their funding partners will create a new sports hub with new outdoor all-weather pitches.

Managing these new community assets with entrepreneurial flair, the CIC will establish Gunnersbury Park as west London’s leading destination for leisure, wellbeing and heritage.  Gunnersbury CIC will run Gunnersbury Park and Museum as a sustainable, social enterprise, putting the community at the heart of the business and developing a blend of commercial and affordable events, heritage, sports and leisure facilities.

    • Learning – assisting with events and activities for a range of different audiences
    • Horticulture – supporting the Head Gardener with park-based tasks
    • Curatorial – working with the curator to look after the collections

    Longer placements for college and university students working within a specific department can sometimes be accommodated.
