We've got a fantastic opportunity to work with our Membership and Welcome team, helping them to deliver excellent service, and a professional welcome to every visitor, every day. You'll ensure your team are informative, engaging and know how to promote our membership, helping us deliver our challenging membership targets.

What it's like to work here

A country retreat in the heart of Worcestershire. The house and garden, originally a stage-set for summer parties, offer a glimpse into life at the turn of the 18th century. Included in the Hall are original wall-paintings by Sir James Thornhill, which are full of drama and politics and show the birth of Georgian society.

The original formal gardens, designed by George London, have been faithfully re-created and complement the relaxed later gardens, with orangery, orchards and walled garden.

What you'll be doing

Visitors are a vital part of what we do. As a charity, every penny we raise goes back into our continued conservation of our places and spaces. As the supervisor for the membership and visitor welcome team, you'll lead by example, seizing all opportunities to grow our income at the visitor welcome, from promoting the benefits of our membership, to gift aid and direct debit schemes. You'll work with the membership team manager to help the team achieve membership targets, as well as delivering your own.

You'll help coach and motivate the team to ensure a high standard of customer service. You'll be responsible for the presentation of the visitor reception and making sure the team is always aware of what's happening at the property that your visitors can enjoy. As a team, you'll tell your visitors about the amazing work we do and what their money is funding.
