Yorkshire and the North East is the Trust’s fourth largest visitor business, but we know that there’s more we can do to help more people enjoy this magical part of the country.
Put simply, you’ll be held to account for the quality of delivery of all conservation matters across Yorkshire and the North East. Playing a key role in the development of our conservation strategy, you’ll strive to deliver a consultancy service that provides the best possible results for your region and the Trust as a whole. Leading and inspiring a team of experts in archaeology, buildings, collections, gardens, landscapes, land and water, you’ll ensure we have the right specialist skills in the right place. But more than that, you understand the bigger picture and the importance of making conservation relevant for all of our visitors.
You’ll drive programmes, empower local teams and design the strategies that breathe life into every inch of the places here. A commercial thinker and inspirational people manager, you’ll do all you can to ensure we achieve financial targets and maximise our income and profitability. Using your bright ideas and big ambitions, you’ll implement the bold ideas needed to look after this vital area of the business.
You’re likely to be based in either Newcastle or York. But wherever you decide to call your office, you’ll spend a lot of your time at other properties and places in the region.
The National Trust is a charity and is completely independent of Government. We rely for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from our commercial operations.
We have over 3.6 million members and 55,000 volunteers. More than 14 million people visit our pay for entry properties, while an estimated 50 million visit our open air properties.
We protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments.
But it doesn’t stop there. We also look after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages – for ever, for everyone.
