Recent Joiners

Here’s a selection of some of our recent joiners. Read about their new responsibilities, experience and what attracted them to Landmark.

Tom Burrows

Digital Content Producer

I'm fresh out of Oxford Brookes University having studied Film and Digital Media Production. I'm thrilled to be working at Landmark with such a great team, especially as I have plenty of memories staying in many amazing Landmark properties. I specialise in cinematography and photography, having worked on Amazon Prime short films, BBC Breakfast photography for Beckford’s Tower and much more. I will be travelling to properties and restoration projects across the country, talking to a range of staff and contractors. I aim to make the best content I can to grow Landmark’s audience engagement.

Sarah Sheard

Warehouse/Furnishings Assistant

I started at Landmark during Covid, helping at Honeybourne (our warehouse) to send PPE to properties to keep our housekeepers and guests safe. I was born and raised in Birmingham and continue to live there today. I was over the moon to start a permanent role as warehouse/furnishings assistant and have learnt many new skills. I help to pick, pack and despatch equipment requests for properties and ensure that they are sent in a quick and efficient manner, from eco-friendly cleaning products to champagne flutes, bread bins to duvets. I am now also assisting our furnishing consultant, John Evetts, supporting him with soft furnishings which I am really enjoying, plus learning so much from John in the process, and feel excited about Landmark’s future.

Kathryn Morse

Employee Relations Manager

I have 15 years’ experience in HR and have joined Landmark Trust from Innovation1st, a merchandising and licensing agency where I worked as their HR Manager. Prior to this I worked in both generalist HR and talent acquisition roles in the FMCG and facilities management industries. I am a keen advocate for talent/management development and enjoy supporting and developing people in their careers.

I recently qualified as a Master Practitioner in NLP, and in my spare time I deliver coaching sessions to clients utilising NLP techniques to deliver personal breakthroughs and overcome limiting beliefs.

This is my first role within the charity sector, and interestingly I first came across Landmark when I was doing the couch to 5k challenge during lockdown last year. My neighbours encouraged me to run a little further out of my comfort zone to see a beautiful lake by a church. During that run I saw my first ever Landmark sign standing outside the office in Shottesbrooke. I remember thinking ‘what a beautiful place for people to work’, then 10 months later here I am!

I’m looking forward to exploring some Landmark properties very soon.

Anthony Hughes

Health and Safety Advisor

I was born, raised and educated near Bristol and moved to the Monmouthshire area of Wales in my mid 30s. My career history included event hosting/management in historic buildings and police work before deciding to pursue a career in health and safety, as the safety and welfare of others often factored in whatever I did. 

I’ve joined from a Catholic Diocese where I was the lead on Health and Safety for a large portfolio of ecclesiastical properties and a diverse workforce, consisting of clergy, employees, and volunteers. Safety and welfare considerations were also extended to contractors and members of the public in respect of Diocesan property, parish events, and other Diocesan undertakings.  

The move to Landmark was a simple decision for me as I’ve been aware of the trust and its beautiful properties for some time and I’m looking to work with others who have a passion for historic and significant buildings. My experience seemed to perfectly merge with the requirements of the role. Plus, having an interest in photography the opportunity to work in such a visually pleasing and interesting environment is a bit of a dream come true. 

Timothy James

Properties Assistant - South

Like many of our staff, I was drawn to work for Landmark because of my passion for historic buildings.  Originally from Pembrokeshire, heritage has always interested me - as a child I was fascinated with the derelict buildings, and I was eager to explore them.  

My first day with Landmark was in 2016 – I was immediately hooked! I started as a relief housekeeper alongside two other jobs, I was able to work in buildings that I would not otherwise get to see inside. I loved exploring the region, jumping at the chance to do a shift at different buildings.   

I am delighted to now be working in a full-time role with Landmark.  In Spring 2021 I became the Properties Assistant for the South region. My role is varied with no two days the same. Based at my home in Bristol I help with the running of the region, supporting the Regional Property Manager.  

Working for Landmark I feel that I am doing a small part to keep alive our architectural heritage, whether I’m ordering new stock, sorting out staff cover or undertaking practical tasks at one of the 27 buildings in my region. 

Emily Burton

Cartographer

I join Landmark following the completion of my MSc in Volcanology at the University of Bristol. Digital mapping using GIS, combined with outreach work in Guatemala, formed the basis of my degree thesis enabling the production of volcanic hazard maps. My undergraduate also involved mapping, both in the field with OS maps and digitally using GIS.

I have been fortunate to stay in several Landmarks with my first being 45a Cloth Fair, London in 2009 when I competed in a national dance competition. Aside from the beauty of the historic buildings the way Landmark seeks to involve the community with its restorations, such as at Llwyn Celyn, resonates with my own outreach work.

Working closely with Simon Verdon I will collate historical records with modern technology to produce a full catalogue of up-to-date and detailed property maps. These maps aim to help both Landmark staff and visitors by displaying varying features of interest from roadways to archaeological sites. This cartography role is therefore a fantastic opportunity to combine my knowledge of digital mapping with my love of historic buildings. I look forward to sharing my progress with you all.
