Could you grow understanding, enjoyment, love and support of one of the country’s best destination brands - the UK’s first national park?

We’re looking for someone to join us, as a key member of our strategic leadership team, to take forward an exciting and ambitious programme to do just this from a diverse range of audiences - including almost 40,000 residents and 20 annual million visitors.

Our story is a pioneering one. Our role to care for the Park and promote its enjoyment is as important today as it was over 65 years ago when we were designated. Nurturing the place in the 21st century poses new challenges and new opportunities. We are making changes to confidently lead the way for the future. It will take an inspirational, enabling leader to support us in building on our legacy and realising our ambitions.

With experience of leading change in a partnership environment you will drive our programme. You will be skilled at diversifying and growing both audience engagement and income through developing visitor experiences, outreach opportunities and building brand awareness. All of this is within a public sector governance framework, which is developing to enable such a progressive agenda for public support of our work. You will be adept at involving, inspiring and developing staff while enhancing partnership working.

You will have strong business acumen, a track record of successfully leading teams to deliver, willing to get operationally involved, and a flair and spirit of innovation to reach out to strengthen and make new connections with communities and partners.

If you are excited by a challenge and want to help preserve and develop access for all to this very special place then please visit for further information. For an initial confidential discussion about the opportunity, please contact who will be able to arrange a discussion with one of the current Directors.

We offer flexible working and may consider applications on a compressed or reduced hour’s basis.

Closing date: 19 September 2018 with the Assessment Centre on 16 October 2018 in Bakewell.
