    Visitor Operations Manager

    Working for the National Trust is, in many ways, unlike any other experience I’ve ever had. Each property has its own unique dynamic and little family, and that’s exactly how we want our members to feel; after all they are the ones who own the Trust!

    Community and Learning Manager

    I love how every day I’m working with different people on a different project. One day I’ll be working asking our 7-11 year old Kid’s Forum for advice on family activities, and the next I’ll be dancing to Beyonce with our Recycled Teenagers (local 55+ year olds)! Nothing is a surprise here, but everything is unusual.
