Employment: Permanent, full time
Reports to: Steve Alderson, Marketing & Comms Lead Brent Cross
Location: London, Brent Cross

Argent Related is a well-established urban property developer, known for delivering large high quality regeneration projects, and multi-award-winning public spaces.

It has exciting and ambitious plans, in partnership with Barnet Council, to develop a new 180- acre Park Town at Brent Cross. For further information click here https://www.brentcrosstown.co.uk

A General Manager & Host is sought to set up and operate a brand new, 158 sq m purpose-built Visitor Pavilion. The Pavilion is located on the development site, and will become the go-to destination for all who wish to find out more about the future of Brent Cross; members of the public, local school and community groups, visiting professionals, clients, stakeholders and colleagues.

This is a new role, and you will be responsible for creating a safe, welcoming, and professional atmosphere that meets the needs and expectations of its many and diverse visitors. An early priority will be to set up policies and procedures relating to the day-to-day running of the space and to any events that may be planned.

You will need to work autonomously, to lead a small team, and to quickly develop your local knowledge of the development plans. An engaging and clear communicator, you will present the scheme to visitors in the exhibition space using both the latest technology, and the architectural scale model of the area.

Day-to-day supervision of the security and housekeeping staff, and for back-of-house operations will fall under your remit.

The space is shared with a small café, and with residential sales and office lettings staff, each of whom have separate spaces within the building. Liaison with these separate but related parts of the Pavilion will be necessary to facilitate the smooth coordination of the various activities and events taking place. The Pavilion will be open 9 am – 6 pm Wednesday – Sunday except for Thursday when it will remain open until 8 pm. It will be closed on Monday and Tuesday.

We aim for staff to occupy the Pavilion by w/c November 8, and to open the doors to the public from w/c November 15. A series of launch events are set to take place later on that month, into December.

The position reports to the Marketing and Communications Lead for Brent Cross Town.
