Current job vacancies
Head of Commercial Operations
The National Maritime Museum Cornwall is an independent, modern, multi-award winning Museum, beautifully showcasing the historical, current and future role of the sea in shaping Cornish, national and international culture. We are proud of our past but forward looking.
We are seeking a self-motivated Head of Commercial Operations who will lead and manage the visitor experience and commercial operations, taking responsibility for visitor experience, retail, catering, events, car park, facilities and the Museum’s estate.
This role has direct responsibility for leading, developing, growing and delivering the Museum’s commercial strategy. You will also be required to identify and deliver new income streams, consistent with the Museum’s brand values. This role is therefore crucial in enabling the Museum to achieve its objectives and financial sustainability.
The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate strong commercial acumen and a proven track record of developing and increasing profitability and driving sustained growth within a similar environment.
We are now very much looking to the future after a challenging and difficult time over the past 18 months. This is an exciting opportunity for the post holder to be involved in bringing together the visitor experience and commercial operations, review our Café offer, and develop a new commercial and corporate hire strategy so we can relaunch our events business.
Are you up for this challenge in one of the most beautiful parts of the country?
A relocation package would be available for the ideal candidate.
