Job Vacancy: Destination Manager (Watford)

Destination Manager (Watford)

£35,000/annum & generous pension
Fixed term to 31 March 2021

Do you have the expertise, passion, and a desire to really put Watford on the national and international map?

Things are really changing in Watford, this is a town with massive ambition, and a commitment to success. We are looking for someone who can raise the profile of the town, who has a wealth of marketing and communications experience and who would thrive on the challenge of being part of Watford’s growth.

If you abound with energy and can match this with a successful background in marketing and communications, ideally in destination management, and would love to see Watford prosper, then this may be the role for you.

We are looking for someone who is creative and innovative, has the ability to work with a wide variety of partners and stakeholders in both the public and private sector – so you need to have a degree of political awareness.

This role is unique, while the post will report to Watford BID on a day to day basis, it is funded by a variety of partners, with the main partner and stakeholder being Watford Borough Council. It is a hands-on post, so you must be willing to take on a variety of projects, while working with partners, but you will have a small team to support you.

This is a really exciting opportunity for someone who wants to develop their personal and professional skills, in a town which really appreciates commitment, passion, ambition and skill.

If you think you can make a difference in Watford, and help us raise our game, we would love to hear from you.
