Crofton General Manager - Kennet and Avon Canal Trust

The Crofton General Manager will have overall responsibility for all aspects of the operation and development of Crofton Beam Engines, a Grade 1 listed site open to visitors from Easter to October.


We are nearing the end of a major project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to conserve and re-present the early 19th century pumping station at Crofton, near Marlborough - home to the oldest working beam engine in the world that is still in its original location and capable of performing the task for which it was installed. We are now looking to recruit a full-time General Manager, to take overall responsibility for running this important heritage attraction, ensuring that it remains sustainable and relevant in the 21st century to visitors and to the local and canal community. You will work with the Crofton Management Team and volunteers at Crofton, and two other members of staff. You will be a team player, with experience of working in a small visitor attraction, probably in the heritage sector.
