Regional Operations Managers – 5 roles across England and Wales
Based: Wigan, Leeds, Birmingham, Newark & Gloucester
The Canal & River Trust is among the UK’s largest and newest charities, having been set up in 2012 to care for our historic canals and river navigations across England and Wales on behalf of the Nations.
We are proud to be the guardian of over 2,000 miles of historic inland waterways which touch millions of people in the major cities, market towns and rural villages they run through. Our towpaths are free to use and provide a space to escape, relax, exercise, and improve your physical and mental health and wellbeing. The Trust’s income now exceeds £200m per annum, and is continuing to grow. Our boating customers desire excellent levels of service and the growing number of volunteers and community groups who help us care for the waterways also seek a rewarding experience..
Having established itself as a major new charity, the Trust is on a journey to deliver ambitious new plans and central to this is the creation of six new regions covering England and Wales. The Trust is seeking to appointment 5 Regional Operations Managers, each working within a region. These regions are North West (Wigan), Yorkshire & North East (Leeds) , West Midlands (Birmingham), East Midlands (Newark) and Wales & South West (Gloucester).
The successful applicants will be leaders and be confident in their ability to lead a large and diverse team including maintenance operatives, contractors, volunteers and local community groups; and have the impact and influence to build and manage relationships with colleagues, customers and other key stakeholders.
This is an exciting opportunity for talented individuals with a passion for and a desire to make a difference in their local regions and its communities through their care for our fantastic industrial heritage. We anticipate that successful candidates will have a variety of previous operations experience.
