Stonehenge seeks general manager to look after prehistoric stones

If you're thinking about quitting your mundane office job and fancy a real change of scenery, we may have found the role for you...

Stonehenge is looking for a general manager to take care of the prehistoric stones at the world-famous site.

The job listed by English Heritage, which comes with a £65,000-a-year salary, is for an "exceptional senior manager, to take the Stonehenge visitor experience forward on completion of the new visitor centre and exhibition galleries in December 2013."

Responsibilities include managing 180 members of staff and liaising with druid leaders.

The general manager of Stonehenge will also oversee arrangements for summer and winter solstices.

English Heritage's historic properties director Tim Reeve told the Daily Mail: "This is not your average job and not your average office.

"The successful candidate will spend some of their time being on the frontline at the monument.

"As well as being commercially astute, they will also need to be culturally sensitive as Stonehenge is an ancient, protected monument."

The closing date for applications is 5 May 2012.
