Summary

Do you enjoy supervising and leading a talented, enthusiastic, passionate team? Are you a customer focussed individual wanting to provide exceptional customer service? If so this role could be for you.

There is a lot of exciting things happening across the property with our Visitor Infrastructure Project. We have a brand new additional Cafe opening in the coming weeks, as well as our own new Production Kitchen just a few months away.

What it's like to work here

Overlooking the river Avon on the edge of Shakespeare's Stratford, Charlecote Park has been part of this corner of rural Warwickshire for centuries. Today the house is still run by the Lucy family and has been in the family for 900 years where it has been filled with treasures of European travels. Outside the parkland, inspired by 'Capability' Brown is home to herds of Jacob sheep and fallow deer.

What you'll be doing

You'll love leading a large team, and with your passion for food and ability to identify new income opportunities, you'll assist the Food & Beverage Manager to deliver an excellent experience for all our visitors at our special place. Through effective supervision and leadership you will motivate the team of staff and volunteers to work towards a culture of exceptional service and make it a great place to work.
