The Old Prison, Northleach.
£25,384 – £27,063

The Cotswolds Conservation Board is developing the facilities and visitor offer at The Old Prison in Northleach.

The Cotswolds Conservation Board and Friends of the Cotswolds charity are creating a vibrant visitor centre at The Old Prison site focusing on the understanding, appreciation and active enjoyment of the Cotswolds and its distinctive features. As part of the development, which will include a café facility, we are looking to recruit a House Manager to oversee the daily operation and develop events programmes and associated revenue streams.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a wonderful area of the country with the rare chance to contribute to the set up of a completely new café operation, significant events programme and the challenge to run the complete facilities service for a small visitor attraction and the Conservation Board’s offices.

A “hands on” role dealing with all the operational activities on-site but also requiring a significant level of planning, development and sales. The successful candidate will work closely with the Director, Board staff and members, trustees of the Friends of Cotswolds charity, volunteers and the local community to complete their duties.
