PKHT is a well-established, dynamic Scottish charity (SC003139) with the aim of conserving and promoting the archaeological and architectural heritage of Perth and Kinross for the benefit of residents, visitors and future generations. We are about to embark on an exciting new chapter in our story: to move our headquarters to existing office accommodation within the A-listed Lower City Mills, Perth, and to develop a programme of conservation and training to repair and make accessible this remarkable working mill as part of the wider cultural offer of the city.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and driven historic buildings conservation professional to join our team and:

  1. Lead on the production of a Conservation Management Plan, working with other Trust staff and Trustees;
  2. Contribute to community and stakeholder consultation and the development of a costed project proposal and fund-raising strategy leading to funding applications for a 3-5 year project beginning in 2021-22;
  3. Contribute to plans to sub-let the Trust’s existing Library Lodge office and the physical move of staff to Lower City Mills.

You will have a relevant degree (Architecture, Historic Building Conservation etc.) OR equivalent knowledge and skills gained through relevant experience. You will also have a track record in project development and management and historic building conservation and have strong IT and communication skills.

The post is offered as a full-time 1-year fixed-term contract, or for the right candidate, as a part-time 2-year contract, both with the possibility of extension for an additional 3-years subject to successful fundraising.

Based in Perth, you will work a 36 hour week with 25 days’ annual leave (or pro rata) and flexible working arrangements, including the potential for some homeworking.

For an informal discussion call David Strachan, Director, on 01738 477081.
