Job description

This is an exciting new role to build upon the recognition of our achievements to date, by elevating the awareness of the Trust and our many partners. We expect that National Geographic will release their documentary in Autumn 2024 about Shackleton and the expedition organized by the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust that found the wreck of Endurance in the Weddell Sea. This is likely to lead to heightened awareness of and interest in our work, which will appeal to applicants with a real interest in maritime heritage and, ideally, the Falkland Islands and/or the South Atlantic/Southern Ocean.

As COO you will serve as the first point of contact representing FMHT in, we envisage, an increasingly high-profile public manner.  You will report to the Chair of Trustees, working collaboratively with the Trustees.  You will also collaborate with a variety of charities, institutions and agencies, all with shared interests in our work. 

We are seeking an energetic ‘all-rounder’ - a proven leadership professional who will roll their sleeves up and deliver.  You will have outstanding communication and liaison skills, be skilful in raising funds and engaging sponsors together with sound financial and contract management experience.  Drawing from your previous experience you will help to design, implement and deliver our operational and commercial objectives.  Highly self-motivated, you will possess the vision, energy and drive to help create and to implement sustainable strategies for the Trust.
