Job description

This is an exciting career opportunity for an experienced and professional manager. We need an inspiring leader with a track record in managing operations who can deliver against ambitious and challenging targets. The role requires a good mix of business, land and people management skills, along with some knowledge of inland waterways and the not-for-profit sector. You will need resourcefulness and initiative, but the post offers considerable freedom and brings the opportunity to make a substantial impact to improve the lives and environment of staff, customers and stakeholders alike.

The Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation runs from Springfield Basin (Chelmsford) to Heybridge Basin (near Maldon), 14.5 miles to the east.The Navigation runs through some of the most picturesque countryside of central Essex and it is Essex Waterways Ltd’s responsibility to maintain and enhance this for public benefit.

The General Manager is head of the paid staff on the waterway, and is responsible for the day-to-day running of all aspects of the Navigation. Although a subsidiary of The Inland Waterways Association, Essex Waterways Ltd is a small organisation with large responsibilities; resources are scarce and the organisation is reliant upon the goodwill and generosity of a wide range of volunteers and support of the wider community. The post of General Manager is a substantial commitment and responsibility. It should be considered more a way of life than just a job. The post-holder will be a pillar of the local community, available and able to deal with emergencies at all times. Weekend, bank holiday and evening work is likely to be essential, for which time-in-lieu will be allowed. The post-holder will require initiative, resourcefulness and life-experience, will be efficient and IT literate and should not be afraid to get their hands dirty with practical work.

The Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation is widely recognised as being well-run and is looked upon as a good example of engaging the community in running a successful waterway and raising standards where others before have tried and not been successful. The position of General Manager is key to the successful continuance of the Navigation, and is a demanding position requiring full attention.

Salary £50,000 + 8% pension contribution + 33 days holiday (including bank holidays) + relocation expenses + flexible working
