The Wordsworth Trust is looking to appoint a Business Planning Consultant on the development of its site in Town End, Grasmere as part of its 2016-20 masterplan project, Reimagining Wordsworth.
A full brief can be found in additional information, outlining the role and key outputs.
The Trust requires a financially sustainable business plan covering both the delivery phase of the project (2018-2020) and five years post completion.
This project aims to encourage more people, from a more diverse range of backgrounds, to participate in and be inspired by literary and cultural heritage. It forms the next, and most significant and exciting, stage in the transformation of the Wordsworth Trust into a more inclusive organisation with a genuinely participatory relationship with its beneficiaries.
The Wordsworth Trust was founded in 1891 to purchase and preserve Dove Cottage, one of the world’s most important literary sites. Dove Cottage was the home of William Wordsworth from 1799 to 1808, his ‘golden decade’ when he wrote most of what is now regarded as his greatest poetry, including ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’, probably the most well-known poem in the English language. Dove Cottage and the adjacent Wordsworth Museum are visited by 53,000 visitors a year.
