Organisation: Scottish Fisheries Museum Trust

Salary: £55,000 per annum

Location: Scottish Fisheries Museum, Anstruther, Fife, KY10 3AB

We are looking to appoint a new Director to lead the museum with imagination and energy at a time of change, challenge and opportunity.

The museum tells story of Scottish fishing. The site incorporates a series of historic buildings along the waterfront in the attractive town of Anstruther, with galleries displaying the nationally significant collections, including several vessels, a working boatyard and a small café. Visitors can also see and go aboard the historic fishing vessel Reaper, moored in the harbour.

This is an exciting and rewarding role in a unique organisation rooted in its local community but with a national compass. You will need to have senior and strategic leadership experience, income generational skills and be an excellent communication and stakeholder relationship manager as well as experienced in motivating and leading a team.

Our aim is to become a 5-star visitor attraction and educational hub with a sustainable future for the outstanding buildings and collections. Successful fundraising is a priority to enable us to do this. The Director has the support of an engaged strategic Board, and leads a small team of committed staff, with the assistance of a dedicated group of specialist volunteers.

Application Deadline: Wednesday 20/09/2023
