The Belper North Mill Trust is looking for an Office Assistant at Sturtt’s North Mill. The position involves providing clerical and administrative support to the Manager, other members of staff, and volunteers so that the daily operations of the Museum run smoothly.
The position is offered on a part-time basis at the prevailing National Living Wage (currently £7.50 per hour). The normal working week will be 10 hours, with some flexibility around days worked, but on occasion this may need to be varied to suit operational needs.
The Belper North Mill Trust runs the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre and a small, independent museum in ‘Strutt’s North Mill’, a former cotton-spinning mill in Belper, Derbyshire within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and is facing challenging times as its current lease and associated funding come to an end.
The Trust seeks a new Chair and Trustee who will lead the charity through an important phase of development and change to secure a vibrant future for our organisation.
The Chair will lead the Trust to raise its profile and will champion the organisation as its lead representative with partners, stakeholders and related organisations and in promoting the role of the Trust as the heritage provider in any proposed developments concerning the future of the site. They will also be the public face of the Trust in its relations with the media.
The Chair will provide leadership and direction to the Board of Trustees, enable the Board to fulfil its responsibilities for the overall governance of the organisation and its effective management and ensure the implementation of its five-year Strategic Plan for 2017-2022.
Trustees are appointed for a three-year term and may be re-appointed.
