Buckfast Abbey is a Catholic Benedictine Monastery. It is a place of worship, a tranquil tourist attraction and has a range of commercial activities.
Membership of the Strategic Advisory Team is similar to that of a Non-Executive Director but without the statutory elements as the role is purely advisory. It is a very broad role and reviews strategically all commercial activities at the Abbey whilst at all times recognising that it is a Monastery. The Abbey has ambitious plans for the future and it is a duty of the Strategic Advisory Team Member to ensure good practice, commercial insight and compliance is adhered to in all new ventures.
Interested candidates should be Directors/Executives who relish the opportunity to assist the Abbey, on a part-time basis, particularly through this period of change and transition. Your sector background need not be from charities but of particular interest would be those with experience of working within the care sector. But, more important than your background, is your desire to add real value to Abbey and to Devon.
Closing date for applications: 18 January, 2021
