Snowdon Mountain Railway

Privately-owned Heritage Great Britain is looking to appoint an experienced General Manager for the world famous and iconic Snowdon Mountain Railway, situated within the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales.

Snowdon Mountain Railway has been taking passengers to the summit of the mountain, Yr Wyddfa, since 1896 and has grown to become a Welsh icon and one of its greatest landmarks.

The commercial railway carries approximately 140,000 passengers each year, operating from March to the end of October, and its magnificent summit building, Hafod Eryri, opens in early May and welcomes a further 500,000 mountain walkers and climbers.

The rack and pinion railway operates a mix of services from original steam engine and carriage heritage services to diesel-driven traditional services, both of which create very high demand for the railway, which often sells out for numerous weeks in peak periods.

In addition to rail services and the mountain journey experience, the business encompasses numerous high-quality catering and retail units, both at the base in Llanberis and at the summit building.

Your key focus will be the overall operational leadership of Snowdon Mountain Railway, incorporating both the railway and engineering side of the business and the commercial tourist attraction that it then operates as. The leadership and development of well-developed and experienced teams will be a primary focus, together with the engagement with the Snowdonia National Park, tourism bodies, the community and wider stakeholders for the benefit of the business.

You will need to deliver solid financial results, as well as maintaining and further developing the high-quality customer experience.

Salary will reflect the responsibility and seniority of the position, with a salary of £70K plus benefits. Relocation support will be given where appropriate.

Heritage Great Britain is an exciting group of companies and businesses that operates some of the UK’s most outstanding landmark destinations and popular visitor attractions.
