The Pennoyer Centre is a charity that relies on fundraising and donations to support its work and maintain its unique heritage building at the heart of the village of Pulham St Mary. The Centre has a café open 6 days per week, an Airship Museum and is available for hire for business bookings, leisure activities, weddings and private parties. There is also a programme of regularly monthly fundraising events as well as special events and activities throughout the year.

We are seeking a person with experience of managing in a hospitality or event management role to manage the work of the Centre, working with a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers, planning and organising events and overseeing operations and delivery of services.
