I have been enamored by Stonehenge
since I was a little girl, and if I had to choose a dream job, the position of Stonehenge general manager would be in the running. The historical monument is in need of an employee to fill the newly created position. If you're interested you need to act quickly because the job position closes on May 5, 2013.
- Manage a team of 80 employees and 100 volunteers
- Ensure top-notch customer service
- Oversee summer and winter solstice gatherings as well as other seasonal events
- Manage a tourist population of more than 1.25 million by the 2016-17 season
Stonehenge is about 4,000 years old
so why the need for a general manager now? According to English Heritage, the organization that oversees Stonehenge, "This year marks a new dawn for Stonehenge. At the end of 2013, new galleries and visitor facilities worthy of the monument's significance will open and the A344 road which severs the ancient processional avenue to Stonehenge and cuts it off from the wider landscape will be closed. By spring 2014, the Stonehenge landscape will be restored to a more tranquil and dignified setting."
