Rebecca McAllan, Director of Public Engagement
Rebecca McAllan is the most recent director to join the Bletchley Park Trust and is responsible for leading the teams that deliver all aspects of Bletchley Park’s engagement with the public. This covers pre-visit marketing and communications, day-to-day visitor operations, education and outreach programmes, through to the delivery of our exhibitions and access to the Collection.
All these teams are committed to providing excellent service to Bletchley Park’s visitors and ensuring we are a high quality visitor attraction. Rebecca’s teams have the challenge of welcoming and accommodating more visitors than ever before as Bletchley Park experiences unprecedented numbers.
Prior to joining the Trust in January 2015, Rebecca worked for eight years for the National Trust, at both Tyntesfield (nr Bristol) and Cliveden (nr Maidenhead) in visitor experience and operations roles, and is very familiar with dealing with high numbers of visitors. Dedicated to inspiring and leading others in delivering great customer service, Rebecca was involved in the concept and delivery of the National Trust’s new Service Leadership programme and worked with other visitor experience managers nationally on different initiatives. Before working in the heritage industry, Rebecca was a retail manager for several years after completing a Medieval and Modern History degree at the University of Birmingham.
Married to a personal trainer, Rebecca enjoys working out and practising yoga, as well as spending time with her friends and family.
