1 year fixed-term contract
Pension provision: up to 6% salary contribution

PKHT is a charity established in 1988 with the aim of conserving and promoting archaeology and architectural heritage in Perth and Kinross for the benefit of residents, visitors and future generations. Our Strategic Plan 2017-22 identifies ‘supporting the sectoral skills base through delivering skills training’ as a key priority.

We wish to appoint a conservation professional on a one-year fixed-term basis to help us deliver our existing skills training projects, including boat building, traditional building skills training and an archaeology field school, and to lead on the development of a project plan and funding package for a 3-year training programme to run from 2020-22.

You will have a relevant qualification in historic building conservation or a related discipline, and a sound understanding of best practice in training and the historic environment, ideally with membership of IHBC or an equivalent organisation.

You will also ideally have some experience of fundraising, ideally within the third sector, and good project and budget management skills along with a sound understanding of skills training in the heritage sector.

Based in Perth, the post offers an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience within a small, but dynamic organisation and while a 1-year, fixed-term contract, there is the possibility of extension to manage the 3-year programme in due course.
