Stirling City Heritage Trust (SCHT) is a Scottish charity and company limited by guarantee funded by Historic Environment Scotland and Stirling Council.  Established in 2004, the Trust is a vehicle for delivery of investment in Stirling’s heritage with a primary focus on the historic built environment of the city.  Currently the Trust’s core activity is delivery of the Traditional Buildings Health Check (TBHC), a not-for profit service, unique in Scotland, which aims to support and encourage proactive repair and preventative maintenance of traditional buildings.

The Trust is seeking an enthusiastic conservation or building professional to work as Projects Officer supporting both the Trust Manager and SCHT team.  The Projects Officer has a key role in delivery of the Trust’s traditional building repair grants and outreach projects including traditional skills training and heritage education.

As Projects Officer you would:

  • Assess grant applications, form recommendations, and manage an ongoing caseload of repair grants, including site visits and meetings with owners, building professionals and contractors.
  • Deliver the Trust’s programme of outreach work including traditional skills demonstration days for local secondary schools, and contractor training events.
  • Work with local stakeholders and national agencies to stimulate understanding, enjoyment and appreciation of Stirling’s historic environment.  This may include Trust-led initiatives, or support of other projects. Activities may include organising workshops, exhibitions and publications.

To meet this role the Trust is seeking an individual with:

  • A degree or postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject such as architecture, building conservation, planning, or building surveying.
  • Alternatively you may have equivalent relevant work experience in the building conservation or heritage sectors.
  • A proven track record in project delivery of conservation grant schemes and ideally experience of delivering outreach projects.
  • Sound financial management experience and strong numerical skills.
  • Excellent communication skills with ability to connect with a broad range of people including the public, building professionals and contractors.
