The British Holiday & Home Parks Association is the leading body representing Britain's holiday, touring and residential park owners and managers. Its mission is to assist and enable over 2,000 member businesses to prosper by supporting them in the management of their 3,000 parks. As the voice of the UK's parks industry, the BH&HPA works across a range of policy areas, championing members' interests to Cardiff, Edinburgh, Stormont and Westminster, as well as across local and combined authorities. These unique rural and coastal businesses have a crucial role in the communities they sustain.  We are at the forefront of a vibrant and varied industry steeped in history, filled with passion, and always adapting for the future.

We are now seeking a new Director General to lead the people and operations at our central office, our engagement with members and influence with key stakeholders in political centres across the UK. This is an exciting role heading up our small staff team as we support our members, both large and small, through a range of issues on a day-to-day basis. Fundamental to the success of the Association is our ability to influence policy in Westminster and the devolved administrations and our Director General plays the leading role in building and leveraging these relationships.

You will be an experienced senior leader able to demonstrate success in leading a comparably complex organisation where the ability to build consensus, work well with varied stakeholders and influence policy has been critical. Whilst you do not need to have directly worked in our industry before, we are looking for someone who is passionate about the work we do and can quickly build their understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by our members. You will have experience in leading change in environments where governance is complex and collaboration is key, bringing people with you on the journey.

This is both an exciting and important time for the BH&HPA and we are looking for a new Director General with the appetite, energy and commitment to make a real difference to our organisation and industry, in a role that has the potential to be both personally rewarding and career defining. If this sounds like the challenge for you, or if you would like an informal conversation to explore the role and your suitability in more detail, please contact Orla Brennan
