Are you?
• Entrepreneurial, creative and resourceful, with a track record of success in increasing revenue across a range of income streams?
• Experienced and passionate about marketing, promotion and customer experience across all platforms?
• A proactive, inclusive and persuasive leader, with a wide knowledge of best practice of fundraising, marketing and sales strategies, ideally in the cultural, leisure and/or tourism industries?


Now is the time to come and work for Rotherham Council's Culture, Sport and Tourism Services!

We are at the start of a new chapter in Rotherham's history with a visionary ambition to transform our events, activities and destinations and make them world-class. We have established a dynamic new leadership team to drive forward the development of our parks and green spaces, libraries, heritage sites, the Civic Theatre, music hub, learning services and events. Deeply-loved by our customers, we want to bring more wow to our work and welcome new residents and visitors alike, particularly children and young people.

Through our new Cultural Partnership, we are working with partners in the voluntary and private sectors, including Wentworth Woodhouse, Gulliver's, Rotherham United and Grimm and Co, to oversee the development of an exciting offer which strengthens Rotherham's distinctiveness and repositions the borough as a high-quality, family-friendly destination. Our collective mission is to enable all our residents to get active, creative and outdoors, more often.

In joining Rotherham's Culture Sport and Tourism team at this extraordinary time, you will be instrumental in the drive to increase participation and strengthen our financial sustainability. And in doing so, you will show how culture, leisure and tourism can build civic pride, improve health, strengthen community cohesion, develop the local economy and transform perceptions. This is your chance to help write the next instalment in Rotherham's story.

Head of Commercial Development and Visitor Experience: This is a brand new role which will lead the development and management of commercial, marketing and customer functions across all destinations and sites in order to increase footfall, generate new revenue and strengthen the financial sustainability of the service.

Experience of capital projects is an advantage.

If you'd like to speak to Polly Hamilton, Assistant Director Culture, Sport and Tourism about the role then please e-mail her assistant [email protected] to arrange a phonecall.

Applications from Women, people from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities and Disabled People are welcomed as under-representation currently exists at this level within the organisation. Section 159 of the Equality Act 2010 applies.
