Job description:
The Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions (ASVA) is looking to recruit a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) due to the retirement of the current CEO. This is an exciting opportunity to lead a highly respected organisation that represents the vibrant Visitor Attraction sector within Scottish tourism.

ASVA is a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation with over 450 member sites. It is the voice of Visitor Attraction in Scotland.

Our mission is:
‘to support and inspire Scottish visitor attractions to deliver sustainable, world-class experiences’

There were just over 40 million visits recorded to member sites in 2017 which was an increase of 10% on the previous year. In terms of employment, ASVA members employ over 5000 FTE.

The role is largely office based in Glasgow although some travel to represent the organisation at external meetings will be required. ASVA has a very small but highly effective team of staff and it is the responsibility of the CEO to ensure the effective and efficient organisation of day to day administration including financial operations and delivery of member benefits, including the annual conference in November each year.

The successful candidate should also be comfortable working with the media including print journalists, radio and occasional TV interviews (in conjunction with our PR company).

The recognition of the key role of attractions within tourism is widely acknowledged. As tourism grows in economic importance, the profile of attractions will continue to grow. In this context, we need an experienced CEO to ensure this momentum continues.

Please send your CV with a covering letter to ASVA Chair, Douglas Walker below.

Interviews will be held on 16th and/or 17th April 2018 with the potential for interviews the following week.
