We’re recruiting the new Chief Operating Officer to head up the operations for Quiet Company and to help us run our award-winning and sustainable operations in London and Cumbria. You will work with a talented and diverse team at Friends House, our London venue, and Swarthmoor Hall, our Cumbria property.

If you are creative, financially sound, have a great track record, are not scared of challenges with an extensive experience in top management positions, we want to hear from you.
