The National Trust protects and cares for places so people and nature can thrive. Many millions share the belief that nature, beauty and history are for everyone. So we look after the nation’s coastline, historic sites, countryside and green spaces, ensuring everyone benefits.

We’re looking for a talented leader to join our Digital team as Head of Digital Development for a period of 12 months. We’re looking for someone who can come in to prepare and deliver a 12 month plan which will lay the foundations for our new digital future. This involves coaching and supporting a number of teams, planning future work and managing our digital budgets and associated workload. The National Trust is a well-loved brand and we need someone who can deliver digital development within a traditional working environment, as well as provide unique new ways of engaging with technology. Leadership, impact and influencer are the key skills we are looking for.

Salary £70-75,000

Currently the team is working remotely, however, as circumstances change you'll be required to be in our Swindon office around once a week.

What it's like to work here

We’re bigger than you think, we’re more complicated than we appear and we’re larger scale than you’d imagine. We’ve got passionate people in all our teams, and we’ve got so much more we want to achieve. We’re for ever, for everyone and we really mean that. We don’t want to stop at 5.5 million members and we want everyone to feel welcome and enjoy access to our places, so we need to reach new audiences in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them without losing the hearts and minds of those that are already with us.

Our central head office Heelis, is situated in Swindon, Wiltshire. We're well placed, with ample parking nearby, a shopping outlet with plenty of options for places to eat, and the town centre only a 10-minute walk away. Alternatively, you can enjoy our open plan atrium space for lunch times, with our internal café available every day.

What you'll be doing

The role has a professional basis within technology and the ideal candidate will have depth and breadth of experience in digital innovation. Equally as important is the ability to lead a transformational culture within the Digital Team. You'll be responsible for Digital Products and User Experience across the whole of the Trust and therefore will have fluency in leading collaborative teams across functions.

Who we're looking for

To be successful in this role, you will need:-

Ability and evidence of developing and leading thriving team cultures
Ability to shape and direct a “digital first” strategy which engages supporters, inspires colleagues and is cost effective
Digital leadership fluency – digital products, development, user experience and ideally AI
Confidence in managing delivery through indirect teams and cross functional working groups
To evidence high impact ways of working to time and budget
To identify with the brand values of the National Trust
