Castle Espie, Comber, Co.Down
Castle Espie is set on the shores of the stunning Strangford Lough where almost the entire population of light-bellied brent geese reside in the winter. Our state-of-the-art, environmentally and visitor friendly wetland centre has recently undergone a major £3m re-development.
We are now looking for a commercially focussed individual to take it forward, ensure its effective operation and growth and firmly place it on the map as the best wetland reserve in Northern Ireland.
This exciting role involves a wide range of responsibilities including the overall day to day management of the centre, development of business opportunities, the promotion of the centre and our vital conservation work.
Experience of running and managing a commercial operation is essential and knowledge gained within a visitor attraction would be beneficial. The ability to communicate, motivate and use IT effectively is essential, as is the need to have an empathy with our conservation work.
A relocation package is available for the successful candidate if required.
A job description and application pack is available from http://www.wwt.org.uk/ Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to HR Department, WWT Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, GL2 7BT
Closing date for applications is 31st March 2010
First interviews will be held on 15th / 16th April 2010 with second interviews taking place on 23rd April 2010
