OPPORTUNITY TO HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE OF THE CRICHTON
The Crichton Trust seeks a Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead the organisation through a period of unprecedented growth and development. Our focus as we transition into the new world is simply on the wellbeing of our people, place, planet and partners.
In our fast-changing connected world of automation, climate change and ageing we need to discover and develop new inspiring inclusive ways and places to live, work, learn, play and relax.
Using technology, lessons learned from the recent pandemic and a drive to Net Zero by 2030, we want to empower and enable a cross-generational, business, academic and individual knowledge exchange community that shapes our world and the ‘Future Economy’. We will do this primarily via the bold and enterprising custodianship of The Crichton, creating a world-renowned home and destination for innovation; a place for people to cohabit and share ideas – all inspired by The Crichton’s extraordinary history, places and spaces.
In a nutshell – ‘we connect people, place and the past to shape the future’ – come and help us shape our future.
If you are excited by a vision for The Crichton to become a world-renowned place for inspiring people, catalysing connection and collaboration, and as a driver of innovation, we want to hear from you.
We see The Crichton as a key leader and enabler out of the immediate challenge of the pandemic to a healthier and more sustainable planet-friendly future in which we all fulfil our best future possibility as individuals, as partners and as organisations.
This is a rare opportunity to use your extensive operational leadership and financial acumen to make a lasting impact on an ambitious award-winning charity and social enterprise which self generates income from a diverse heritage, hospitality, venue and property business.
The Chief Operating Officer will play a critical role in the Trust’s custodianship of our historic estate and will secure the functionality of our business, drive extensive and sustainable Net Zero growth and oversee the Trust’s operations, financial performance and procedures.
