It is with mixed emotions that I write this post. Both excitement at what lies ahead and sadness as I face leaving my lovely Charlecote for a year*.
Late March, I will be heading off on maternity leave, preparing for quite a different year ahead. This means that I will be handing over my reigns to… erm… well, we don’t know yet! Could it be you?
My role is so varied I can barely describe my ‘typical’ day at work. Working across all the departments, supporting in different ways, I get to see every side of property life. I’m not sure if you can quite fit it all into a standard job description but we had a good go!
I get to look after this blog and our other social media platforms – one of my favourite bits of the job! But I also champion our green practices, attend off-site meetings to represent Charlecote, cover duty management responsibilities, answer endless emails and sometimes lend an extra hand when our retail or house elves need it.
But fear not, I am cramming all that I can into my handover notes which currently consists of 2 files full of hints, tips, advice and step-by-step instructions. I’ve been at Charlecote for over 6 years now, so it feels like there is a lot to fit in!
If you’re interested in the role, get an application in by 9 March 2014. More information can be found on our National Trust jobs website (job reference: IRC13301 or go to advanced search ‘charlecote’)
* I will of course, be making sure I visit the park regularly to enjoy the views through the seasons and attend the ever-popular family events!
