Full time (37 hrs pw), permanent
Vacancy ID: 010399 

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic senior officer to work within our Capital Programme and Project Team to deliver a Townscape Heritage project in Stockton Town Centre’s Northern Gateway.

The project will focus on heritage around the Norton Road area which suffers from vacancy, neglect and decay. It will seek to restore many of the architectural features and thus conserve the physical appearance of the historic built environment of the area. The five year project, which has been awarded a £1.8m National Lottery Heritage Fund grant, will focus on restoring up to 16 buildings around the National Lottery funded Globe Theatre and Victoria Estate housing development.

The post holder will project manage delivery of the scheme and will be supported by a dedicated administration assistant who will provide additional capacity in delivering a variety of complementary heritage activities and initiatives. These include heritage skills training, working with volunteers, projects with local schools, heritage events, digital projects and an archaeological excavation.

To be successful in this role, you will have demonstrable experience of planning and managing complex and multiple projects and/or programmes while maintaining a focus on delivery and quality.  Ideally you will have a recognised degree in architecture, building conservation or building surveying along with extensive knowledge of conservation practice and building construction, to complement the comprehensive range of project management skills necessary to undertake the role.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Nigel Laws, Strategic Economic Growth Officer, on 01642 527565 or Simon Mills, Principal Capital Programme Officer, on 01642 526991.
