Key Keeper required for Flint Castle

Wednesday 05 December 2018

Flint Castle

Flint Castle 

Cadw, the Welsh Government’s historic environment service, is seeking a dedicated key keeper with responsibility for checking the monument on a daily basis. Key keepers are invaluable to Cadw as they are relied upon to ensure the monument is always well-presented and well-turned-out for our visitors and to keep a day-to-day eye on the condition of the monument.

The generic duties at or around the monument are:

• Locking and unlocking the monument on a daily basis for 361 days per year ensuring that it is open from at least 10am—4pm; locked from dusk till dawn
• Picking up litter (including dog mess) for which equipment will be provided
• Reporting any monument damage or vandalism to Cadw
• Reporting anti-social behaviour to Cadw and if necessary notifying police of any undesirable person or activities at the monument

The post is not a salaried position — a modest fee is paid gross of income tax and National Insurance contributions on a quarterly basis. The key keeper will not be a Welsh Government employee, agent or partner and will be appointed as an independent contractor.

Key keepers are expected to live in close proximity to their monument and no more than a distance of 2-3 miles away at the most.

If you think you can meet this challenge and commitment, please send your expression of interest outlining how you would be able to meet the duties required and any relevant experience, to the postal or email address below.

Please include your postcode, a contact telephone number and distance to the monument.
