Do you have an interest in local and world military history? Looking for a completely unique and interesting opportunity?
Castletown D Day Centre is a hidden gem of an attraction situated on the beautiful Portland harbour welcoming around 20,000 visitors per year. This vital Royal Navy dockyard played an integral part in history and was the place in which hundreds of thousands of American servicemen said their farewells to friendly shores for the very last time.
As a registered Community Interest Company, the centre is non-profit making and aims to provide an educational and interactive experience for all. We are proud to be rated the #1 thing to do on Portland and have been given 5 stars by TripAdvisor along with a Certificate of Excellence Award. Check out the reviews for yourself!
The centre will be open 7 days a week from 10:30 - 15:30, between the months of May and October. We also aim to open most weekends throughout the winter season.
We are looking to appoint a part time Deputy Manager to help run this unique centre 3 days per week throughout the whole year. Sharing our passion and knowledge for WW2 will give you a distinct advantage along with good organisational skills and previous supervisory experience to ensure smooth running in the managers absence.
You will be expected to adhere to safe Covid hygiene practises while helping to give a unique hands on experience in a safe and friendly environment.
Mechanical/practical skills as well as an up to date driving license would be advantageous. Getting out on the vehicles is one of many perks of working here!
Join our team and you too can be part of this incredible piece of living history.
