Irish Landmark Trust (ILT) is a non-profit heritage organisation that gives new life to interesting and unusual historic buildings.  Since 1992, ILT has been turning unique buildings – ranging from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges – into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation.  As an educational charity, we work with the best artisans, builders and craftspeople, and give them scope to revive traditional skills that might otherwise be lost.  Our properties are living buildings, not museum settings. We respect the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have the contemporary comforts of a modern holiday home.

ILT now wishes to appoint a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to replace the current CEO who is  retiring from the position. The new CEO will be based in our Dublin office and will lead a small but committed team, working closely with the Trustees and key stakeholders, in managing and directing ILT’s evolving role within the heritage sector

  • Lead the identification, sourcing and review of sustainable funding for the organisation and identify opportunities to improve funding and cashflow to ensure the survival and growth of the organisation.
  • Play a key role in the further development of a shared vision of the mission, values and culture of the organisation, developing its commercial and philanthropic strategies and ensuring their successful execution in line with the organisation’s strategic plan
  • Develop and influence excellent relationships with key stakeholders within the heritage sector
  • Ensure that appropriate resources are allocated for the direct support of the activities of ILT.
  • Identify and manage appropriate joint ventures with partner organisations for the benefit of ILT.

You should have:

  • A successful track record at senior level executive, demonstrating strategic thinking, high level planning, execution and influencing skills allied to resilience, decisiveness and a business mind-set.
  • An understanding of Hospitality, Heritage and Tourism sectors and the experience to successfully lead interactions with key stakeholders in Ireland, north and south

  • Strong financial management and acumen allied to personal and professional integrity.
