Situations Vacant


Managing Director

The Haynes International Motor Museum is an Educational Charitable Trust which displays one of Europe’s premier international motor vehicle collections and receives over 100,000 visitors per year generating entry ticket and catalogue sales in excess of £650,000 PA.


In common with most charities the museum owns and operates a commercial arm, known as Haynes International Motor Museum Limited.  The commercial activities are split into three departments; Hospitality Services (which includes Conferencing, Hospitality and the “Café 750”), Haynes Garage Services and Retail.  Between them they have a turnover in excess of £1M PA with profits being gifted to the Charity.


The Trustees are ambitious to see further growth and improvement and have secured the funding to invest in further development at the museum.  This unique motor museum is therefore seeking an entrepreneurial and dynamic leader to build on its recent capital development in order to take the Charitable Trust forward into the next phase of its evolution.


You will need proven experience and expertise in the museum / heritage sector, together with strong business planning and people management skills to provide leadership and strategic direction for the organisation.  A successful track record of working with businesses and corporate stakeholders and fund raising from public and private sources is essential as is a flexible and enthusiastic approach.


Please submit a handwritten letter of interest describing your career path, your skills and your interests, salary expectations and a detailed curriculum vitae to Anita Spurway, Rebecca Bevins HR Consultancy, 3 Boundary Way, Lufton Trading Estate, Yeovil, Somerset BA22 8HZ.


The closing date for applications is the 5th December 2015.
