Chief Executive – Re-Form Heritage
Hours: Full time
Location: Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
Closing date: 10:00 am 14 June 2021
Re-Form Heritage specialises in revitalising communities through the regeneration of their historic buildings. The charity restores heritage buildings at risk of decay and demolition where the resurgence of an existing use, or the introduction of a new use, will have a beneficial effect on the local community. The areas in which Re-Form Heritage works are often impacted by deprivation, underinvestment and inadequate infrastructure – places which will benefit most from the regeneration and economic growth we deliver. Re-Form Heritage owns three sites and has interests in the future of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry site in east London.
▪ Middleport Pottery, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
▪ Harper Street, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire
▪ Old Duchy Palace, Lostwithiel, Cornwall
The Board of Re-Form Heritage is seeking an exceptional Chief Executive. The new Chief Executive will provide inspirational and entrepreneurial leadership for the organisation and its stakeholders, ensuring strategic vision, financial resilience, commercial success, and long-term stability and growth. They will ensure that all operational processes run effectively and contribute to meeting agreed financial, social, welfare and educational objectives. The role includes overseeing the sustainable maintenance of historic buildings, collections and archives and relationship management with key stakeholders.
Middleport Pottery is the charity’s principal asset and currently represents a large proportion of the operational focus for this role. The Chief Executive is also responsible for developing and operating further projects and acquisitions undertaken by Re-Form Heritage, meaning that the role will develop into a broadly based strategic function with Middleport Pottery as a part of a wider site portfolio. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of successful leadership at a senior level in a charitable, heritage or cultural organisation. They will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with demonstrable experience in building alliances, analysing financial viability, fundraising, and heritage and visitor attraction management. As the role has an operational focus in Stoke-on-Trent, the Chief Executive will be responsible for playing an active role with local stakeholders in supporting the success of Stoke-on-Trent as a visitor destination.
