NCTA Management Board Application Information

Expansion of board 2020

The National Coastal Tourism Academy is the only national organisation in England focusing solely on boosting jobs and economic growth in the visitor economy of coastal communities. Working with DMOs, industry, government, academia and organisations concerned with coastal matters, we have amassed in-depth knowledge of the opportunities and challenges facing coastal destinations to help ensure coastal tourism has a strong and sustainable future.

Established in 2013, the NCTA is now looking to expand its Management Board to enlist two additional members, a representative from the tourism industry and from a coastal destination.

In line with the terms of reference for the Board, representatives must meet the following criteria:

  • Tourism Industry

A senior figure within the industry, currently working in the coastal tourism industry and / or representative of a tourism industry management group, with current commercial experience

  • Destination Management Organisation

Director or Senior Manager within a coastal Destination Management Organisation with expertise in destination development, marketing or regeneration.

We are looking for strategic thinkers, strong communicators who will shape the direction of the Academy, individuals who are, above all, passionate about coastal tourism. These are voluntary roles, with a commitment of half a day per meeting, three times a year.

If you would like to ensure coastal tourism’s voice is heard, we’d love to hear from you. For further information or an informal chat please contact Samantha Richardson.

To apply, please send a CV and covering letter detailing why you would like to join Board and how you could support the work of the NCTA to by Friday, 6th December.

Decisions will be made by the current NCTA Management Board by w/c 6th January 2020.
