The Bristol Zoological Society is seeking a Commercial Director.

 

Salary: £70,000 per annum  

Full time - 37.5 hours per week  

 

Bristol Zoological Society is world-famous. Established in 1835, the Society is a charity dedicated to saving wildlife together. We do this through conservation action and engaging people with the natural world.  We achieve the mission through operating two zoos, Bristol Zoo Gardens and the Wild Place Project, engaging with guests, formal and informal education programmes, and through a series of science and conservation programmes.  

 

A new strategy for the Society is currently being developed and the successful achievement of this is fundamentally tied to the success of our commercial activities. In particular the Society's ability to clearly communicate a compelling and engaging proposition at our two visitor attractions that engages different audiences in an increasingly competitive marketplace.  

 

The new Commercial Director will play a fundamental role in delivering this goal.  

We are currently recruiting for a high-level commercial professional to become a member of the Executive Board, contributing a vital role to the commercial operation, strategic development and planning of the business.

 

The overall purpose of this role is to develop, recommend and implement the Society's commercial strategy and associated business plans, while ensuring effective commercial operations are maintained at all times.

 

We invite applications from those who have operated at executive level, with knowledge and experience of commercial strategy and operations in a visitor attraction.

 

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate experience in leading strategic and business planning processes and have the ability to develop and execute new ideas and concepts.

 

Closing date for applications is noon on Monday 26th November 2018 and initial interviews will take place on Friday 7th December.
