Job Description:
House Manager: Coggeshall Properties
Permanent f/t (37.5 hrs pw)

Do you want to look after and bring to life and extraordinary historical places? We’re looking for someone who can balance sound conservation management skills with a desire to make visiting Paycocke’s House & Gardens and Grange Barn an experience that’s not just informative but also inspirational.

What it's like to work here
Paycocke’s House & Gardens is a stunning Tudor wool merchant’s house, built in 1509-10. This house is a grand example of the great wealth enjoyed by its former owner, Thomas Paycocke. 2018 marks the 500th anniversary of his death.

Not far from Paycocke is Grange Barn; a 13th Century monastic barn with cathedral-like interior. Grange Barn is one of Europe’s oldest timber-framed buildings.

What you'll be doing
As our House Manager you’ll be responsible for the planning and implementation of our conservation work both at Paycocke’s House & Garden and Grange Barn. Working with a range of teams, both internally and externally, you’ll be ensuring that the house and collection continue to meet Museum Accreditation standards.

You’ll bring our conservation and curatorial work to the forefront of our visitor experience, setting and delivering a strategic plan for visitor engagement within the house. You’ll also need to collate and record information about the house and it’s collection to continue our understanding of the property and how best to interpret and present it to our visitors.

As well as being involved in the recruitment of new staff, you’ll also manage our current team of House staff; holding regular reviews to give feedback, set objectives and monitor performance. You will also be responsible for the food and drink and retail offer for the properties, generating revenue to carry out our conservation work, and for delivering a great visitor welcome at our special places. The care you show for the House and Barn will also extend to the land around the Barn and the Garden at Paycocke’s, which is Arts & Crafts inspired.

You’ll manage project, operational and delegated budgets and contribute towards the financial planning process – you’ll also have a keen eye to help identify new opportunities for income, innovation and external funding.

Who we're looking for
To be successful in this role you’ll need to;
• Have a strong understanding of preventive conservation with an awareness of Museum Accreditation standards
• Have great people management and leadership skills
• Be open to and interested by creative thinking around interpretation of our house and collections
• Have previous experience of managing budgets
• Be able to think strategically and work collaboratively with a number of peers from other departments
• Have a degree in a relevant field and/or operational experience in historic properties
• Have an awareness of commercial operations
• Have an awareness of gardening

Looking after your career

• Develop your skills with an internal secondment
