Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) is the independent charity responsible for the management of six royal palaces and their associated content and landscapes.

The Role

As our new Director of Finance, working closely with me, the Board of Trustees and leadership team colleagues, you will have a significant role to play in this next phase of development where innovation and financial strategy will be at the heart of our approach. For someone with the appetite to lead financial recovery and make a difference in the sector, this is a exciting opportunity.

A strategic leader, you will embrace our collaborative approach to work across the organisation as a critical friend, enabler and constructive challenge to the senior team. You will be a rigorous, clear thinker who will help move the organisation forward. Whatever your sector background you will need to be a strong communicator with the confidence and energy to impact quickly at an important time for us. 

At Historic Royal Palaces we need the very best people to help us achieve our ambition. If you believe you have the strengths we are looking for and want to be part of our team, then we hope you will be inspired to find out more.
