ArcHeritage is the Sheffield branch of the York Archaeological Trust that has offices in York, Sheffield, Nottingham and Glasgow, and five attractions in York, including the famous JORVIK Viking Centre. It is one of the largest heritage organisations in the UK. We provide a wide range of services to commercial clients, government organisations, local authorities, charities and individuals. The Trust is an educational charity that combines archaeology with attractions and is committed to sharing information and creating heritage-focussed learning and participation opportunities for everyone.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced heritage professional to fill the role of Regional Manager. The Regional Manager is responsible for managing the team and the office in Sheffield and for generating new business opportunities, creating new external partnerships and securing externally-funded projects. They have responsibility for the overall financial performance and sustainability of the office, facilitate the development of staff skills, and encourage the sharing of expertise across the Trust as a whole.
The post-holder will be actively engaged in the heritage profession, seeking to continually develop their own skills and knowledge and contributing to the development of the profession more widely. The post-holder will be committed to disseminating archaeological knowledge to a wide audience, to fulfil the charitable remit of the Trust.
The role requires a creative and engaging approach, fostering a collaborative working environment. Excellent communications skills are an essential part of the role, for intra-Trust working, good team cohesion and successful client/customer relations. The Regional Manager must make a significant contribution to future developments in Sheffield and the wider region and will contribute directly to the delivery of special projects. The post-holder must be flexible and forward thinking.
The role will be based in Sheffield offices, but some project work will be national in scope. This is a permanent position with a 3-month probationary period. The successful candidate will demonstrate a thorough understanding of the planning process, national and regional frameworks and current best practice and approaches to management of the historic environment. Full Membership of CIfA is preferred. The delivery of public outreach activities will also form an integral part of this role. The York Archaeological Trust is an educational charity with a clear remit for enhancing public engagement with archaeology and heritage and we are looking to expand our impact in this area.
