Executive Director. Town Hall, Hebden Bridge

Are you dynamic and collaborative, a person whose first response is "yes we can"?  We are looking for someone with drive, ambition and vision to manage The Town Hall in Hebden Bridge and support the trustees in their collective leadership of Hebden Bridge Community Association.
