Islands’ Partnership Executive Director

About

The Islands’ Partnership, the official Destination Management Organisation for the Isles of Scilly, is seeking a new Executive Director to lead the organisation and the islands’ tourism industry into a new and exciting chapter.

Since forming in 2012, the IP has grown in both stature and influence to become a respected organisation and a trusted delivery partner, providing strategic leadership to the islands’ visitor economy – an industry that supports some 80% of the islands’ employment.

Last year, the IP partnered with the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP to develop and launch Scilly’s first Destination Management Plan (DMP). The DMP and its supporting Action Plan set out a strategic roadmap and new sense of direction for the islands’ visitor economy with an overriding ambition to grow the visitor economy by 5% year on year over the next five years.

With the incumbent post-holder leaving the islands after four and a half years this summer, the IP is therefore seeking a new Executive Director to build on this momentum and to help steer the organisation forward with confidence, further strengthening our strategic leadership role and delivering on the ambitions set out in the DMP.
