Vacancy: Operations Manager, The Folly, Settle’s House Of Mystery


As Operations Manager it will be your job to ensure the smooth day to day running of The Folly, Settle’s House of Mystery. The Folly is Settle’s only Grade 1 listed historic property and dates from the 17th century. This unique attraction incorporates the well-renowned Coffee House, an Artisan’s Gallery, Museum of North Craven Life and Exhibition Galleries.

The Folly is currently in the process of delivering an HLF Project to improve the visitor experience and to engage more people in understanding our heritage. One of the main purposes of this role is to support the Heritage Development Officer in improving the overall operations in line with the experience, by cultivating an ethos of efficiency and quality of presentation in all that we do. There will be a great deal of autonomy in this role. This is a new position offered initially on a 12-month fixed-term contract.

Reporting to the Chairman, this is a very hands-on and diverse role, with responsibility for the day to day running of all operational aspects of The Folly (excluding the Coffee House, which has a Manager in post) and an opportunity to influence the future commercial direction of the property. This is a challenging and rewarding role too, that involves both administration and front of house duties, as well as duty management and key-holder responsibilities.

Closing date:  Friday 29 March 2019 4:00pm
