Job Title: Operations Officer
Working For: Historic Houses Association
Salary: £25,000 - £28,000
The Historic Houses Association (HHA) represents more than 1,600 historic houses, castles and gardens in independent ownership across the UK. These are listed buildings or designated gardens, usually Grade I or II*, and are often outstanding. Members range from world-renowned stately homes such as Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle, Castle Howard and Burghley House, to more intimate houses such as Traquair in Scotland, Treowen in Wales and Belle Isle in Northern Ireland. Around 60% of these properties open their doors to visitors for days out, special tours, school visits, film locations, weddings or events. There are 24 million visits to HHA Member houses each year, and there are over 50,000 Friends of the HHA. The HHA was established in 1973 to carry out important lobbying, advisory, marketing and technical work on behalf of Member houses.
The Operations Officer is an important member of the staff team and acts as the first point of contact at our Chester Street office, ensuring the smooth running of the organisation. The role provides administrative and operational support to the central office team and our Member houses, and helps to promote Member properties through our website, promotional materials, educational events and awards. The HHA is currently going through a rebranding and organisational review which will focus on our membership, communications channels and infrastructure, and the Operations Officer will play a key role in the success of this process.
