We’re Hiring: Chief Executive Officer

Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust has an exciting vacancy for a new Chief Executive Officer to help deliver the range of services provided by the charity. The Trust operates Buxton Visitor Centre and Buxton Crescent Experience, as well as providing a wide range of education activities and events that showcase Buxton’s cultural and spa heritage. The Trust has recently been awarded a £241,000 grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the new Chief Executive will be responsible for ensuring the charity delivers on the Approved Purposes of the grant.

The Chief Executive Officer will be responsible for providing leadership, developing and implementing Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust’s strategic, financial and operational plans, leading on fundraising, sponsorship and business development, and being an effective advocate for the charity and its beneficiaries.

The CEO will lead a small senior management team and will be responsible for ensuring financial management and controls, supporting and advising on good governance across all aspects of the charity whilst providing strategic management of our operations. This is a first-tier post directly responsible for delivering the Trust’s objectives and reporting to the Board of Directors and Trustees.

The CEO will lead on fundraising and sponsorship, securing additional grant funding for the charity as well as forging new partnerships with appropriate businesses. The post would therefore be an ideal first role for a fundraising professional looking to transition into a leadership role.

We require a professional who has the ability to focus on delivery, provide purpose and direction, and who will work collaboratively with the Trust Team and support our people to perform at their best.
