The National Trust was founded to look after beautiful and historic places for the whole nation: forever, for everyone. We have over 20 million visits to our houses, parks and gardens each year, but we know we have much further to go to be, and to be seen as, more relevant, accessible and welcoming to a more diverse cross section of society.
We are seeking to appoint a Head of Diversity and Inclusion to drive best practice across the organisation. We aim to be relevant and accessible to everyone. This will affect every aspect of our work: from the stories we tell to the way we market ourselves, the welcome we give to everyone, and who we are as an organisation. We passionately want to see diversity hard-wired into how we work as an organisation, and your role will be to provide expert guidance to help shape our actions.

What it’s like to work here
We provide the best possible working environment for you throughout the building whilst also promoting and fostering a sociable Heelis Community. Do great things for us and we’ll do great things for you and your career.
Heelis is the Central Office for the National Trust; it was named after one of the Trust’s biggest benefactors Mrs William Heelis. There are approximately 500 staff from across the Trust’s directorates, including the Executive team and the Director General, who are based here. Heelis was designed to be highly sustainable and has won a number of nationally recognised awards.
Designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects in 2005, this architectural gem uses timber from our woodlands and wool from Herdwick sheep grazed on Trust farmlands, to help make Heelis a unique working environment.

You’ll be well connected, creative, and collaborative.
