Remembering the past. Protecting the future.

The National Holocaust Centre and Museum is the only centre dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education in the UK. More than a museum, the Centre is a vibrant memorial; a place of testimony and a Centre of learning for communities of all faiths, and none, across the UK. We are communicators of Holocaust memory for a contemporary purpose: to encourage people to become Upstanders against hate and the persecution of otherness. More than a museum, the Centre is a vibrant memorial; a place of testimony and a Centre of learning for communities of all faiths, and none, across the UK. Combining world-class curatorial and academic expertise with innovative storytelling, presentation and digital technologies, we are creating a bold, future-proof solution to a profound social problem.

Now, at an exciting time in our history, we are currently seeking an outstanding and passionate Chief Executive who will drive our ambitious new strategy and have a significant impact on both the Centre and the wider Holocaust education and outreach community. Reporting to the Chairman and Board of Trustees, the Chief Executive will be responsible for providing inspirational leadership and strategic management as well as effective resource management. S/he will raise the profile of our work, be a key external ambassador and will build strong relationships with key stakeholders, donors, and future partners. In addition, s/he will manage the staff and volunteers and foster a productive and friendly work environment.

This role offers a unique opportunity for an individual with a genuine interest in, and passion for, Holocaust education and outreach, to lead an innovative and important national Centre. The successful candidate will demonstrate significant leadership experience, strong resource management and commercial acumen. S/he will be an engaging and inspiring communicator and will have excellent interpersonal and stakeholder management skills that will inspire fundraising and other income generating activities. Knowledge and awareness of the arts and heritage sector is desirable but not essential. Perhaps most importantly, s/he will demonstrate a passion for the Centre’s purpose and be an innovative thinker, with the ability to drive new technology in the Centre and further its impact.

The closing date for applications is 9am (BST) Monday 27th May 2019.

The salary is commensurate with the seniority of the role and the role is based in Laxton, Nottinghamshire, with flexible working opportunities available.
