Tourist board The Mersey Partnership (TMP) is on the hunt for a new director to oversee the development of the city region’s billion-pound visitor economy after David Andrews left the post.
Andrews stepped down from the role as TMP’s director of visitor economy earlier this month to take up the position as chief executive of VisitWiltshire. He left after less than 18 months in the post.
But the membership organisation said it is now seeking someone to ensure Liverpool’s “great recent economic success story continues to thrive and realises its considerable potential”.
The successful applicant also has to have the “energy and passion required” to ensure the Liverpool city region continues to “enhance its UK and international tourism reputation”. The annual salary will be about £75,000.
Liverpool’s tourism industry supports an estimated 41,000 jobs and now boasts 11 million visitor staying nights per year. TMP said the city is also the sixth most popular destination for international visitors to the UK.
