  • What you'll be doing

    Within this role you will be responsible for managing the facilities management team and the building team (12 reportees) at this World Heritage Site. Although you will report to the General Manager, you will have a dotted line to the Business Support Manager who leads on Operational Risk monitoring & energy issues and work closely with the Head of Conservation and the regional Building Surveyor.

    Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal is one of the most visited properties in the Trust and this new role reflects our vision to be hugely busy and magnificent, to grow into our World Heritage status, and to be a flagship for the Trust. The recent changes to the staff structure that have created this role have been as a direct result of monitoring our business plan delivery in 2017, and recognising where issues exist that are impacting upon our ability to deliver our bold ambitions. Our focus in the medium term is on improving our infrastructure, interpretation and presentation to a level expected of a World Heritage Site and Flagship for the Trust. We have significant infrastructure investment in the years ahead and the key task for this role will be to lead the team to deliver the highest possible standards in everything they do.
