The National Trust Consultancy is the home to specialists in every field of our work. A national consultancy, where resources are shared across disciplines and boundaries, it’s proving to be a great repository of skills, talent and experience. The diversity and quality of expertise within the Consultancy will enable our properties and places to benefit from an extraordinary range of creative and innovative thinking, as well as deep expertise in all matters relating to our twin purpose of caring for the nation’s heritage and landscapes, and making these accessible to all.
We want the special places in our care to be enjoyed centuries from now. That’s our vision. And to be sustainable for the future, we need to ensure we’re making the most efficient use of natural resources, water and energy right now. Our aim is to reduce our combined heating and power consumption by 20% by 2020, and to generate at least 50% of the remaining consumption through renewable energy using our own resources.

Collaboration is at the heart of this role, so you’ll need be a brilliant leader of both people and projects, inspiring across the board as you achieve targets and deliver the results we’re looking for.
