We are on a journey to create a self-sufficient charity using revenue generated from property income to sustain a portfolio of 22 heritage assets which are being transferred to our care from Coventry City Council. You have the opportunity to shape the next stage of our development as we operate an estate of buildings in the city, open Charterhouse as a new visitor attraction, and move onto the next phase of project development and delivery. In the last three years we have completed restoration and transfer of 19 buildings to the Trust, opening a new music venue and six holiday cottages to the public, as well as running a growing creative programme of activities, events and volunteering.

If you have experience in successful management of heritage/cultural venues, charity leadership, fundraising, managing and motivating staff, excellent project and financial management skills and the ability to inspire others by engaging them in stories of Coventry’s past then this is an opportunity for you.
