Stonehenge is the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe, one of the wonders of the world, and the centrepiece of the National Heritage Collection. English Heritage is looking for an exceptional senior manager, to take the Stonehenge visitor experience forward on completion of the new visitor centre and exhibition galleries in December 2013.

English Heritage is responsible for the overall management of 420 historic properties, welcoming over 10 million visitors each year. The most significant, popular and commercially successful is Stonehenge, which will soon have a visitor experience to rival the most prestigious in the world, with visitor numbers expected to rise to 1.25m by 2016/17.

Reporting to the Historic Properties Director, and part of the national leadership team, the new General Manager will have a unique opportunity to lead Stonehenge into a new era. The expanded commercial operations and transformed visitor experience will be supported by a team of over 80 employees, over 100 new volunteers, a variety of educational activities and an engaging temporary exhibitions programme.

The successful candidate will be a dynamic and inspirational leader, with relevant experience at a major visitor attraction, ideally in the cultural sector. Exceptional stakeholder management will be crucial, along with sophisticated influencing and persuasion skills, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the confidence and ability to represent EH at a senior level.

Please submit your CV and a cover letter detailing how you feel you meet the key requirements of the role, as found in the Job Description.

Following an initial sift process, preliminary interviews are planned for 15th and 16th May, and further assessment scheduled for week commencing 27th May.
