Summary

Have you got fantastic team leadership skills and experience of working to targets in a busy visitor environment? We’d like you to bring those skills to the biggest conservation charity in Europe. We need your help to delight our visitors every day, helping us grow our membership every year.

What it's like to work here

One of the East Midlands’ top 10 visitor attractions, ghostly Calke Abbey is a high performing property. The unique visitor experience gives a vivid portrayal of a decaying country house, with the property’s interiors preserved but not restored. The team are passionate and committed to the property and maintain exceptional standards of conservation. The newly refurbished restaurant serves local and seasonal produce, including organically reared meat from the estate.

What you'll be doing

Visitors are a vital part of what we do. As a charity every penny we raise goes back into our continued conservation of our places and spaces. As the manager for the membership and visitor welcome team, you’ll lead by example, seizing all opportunities to grow our income at the visitor welcome, from promoting the benefits of our membership, to gift aid and direct debit schemes. You’ll be responsible for inspiring your team to achieve membership targets, as well as delivering your own.

You’ll coach and motivate the team to ensure a high standard of customer service. You’ll be responsible for the presentation of the visitor reception and making sure your team is always aware of what’s happening at the property that your visitors can enjoy. You’ll tell your visitors about the amazing work we do and what their money is funding.
