Commercial Manager

Permanent Role
Salary Dependant on Experience

Founded in 1967, the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust Ltd is a registered charity whose twin aims are education and heritage conservation. The Trust cares for 36 scheduled monuments and listed buildings within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and operates 10 museums which collectively tell the story of the Ironbridge Gorge’s universal significance for its unique role in the development of the Industrial Revolution.

These museums receive around 500,000 visits a year, including 70,000 school visits all of whom are received by the Front of House Teams. To make a step change in visitor engagement and commercial performance we are restructuring and transforming our Front of House and Commercial Operations. To complete the restructure we are recruiting for the new post of Commercial Manager.

Reporting to the Director of Operations, the Commercial Manager will manage and drive the Trust’s Retail, Conference & Banqueting and ticket sales teams. A priority will be to maximise returns from ticket sales and gift aid and to deliver the Trust’s Retail Strategy, maximising profit from commercial operations. This will be achieved alongside the delivery of customer service excellence, working closely with the wider Operations Team.

The role would suit someone with significant commercial experience, who has a strong background in retail operations. Excellent negotiating, influencing and communication skills are vital as is a passion for Customer Service excellence. The successful candidate will have experience of business planning and the implementation of operating models to achieving commercial and customer satisfaction targets.
