Heritage Project Co-ordinator
We are looking for a Heritage Project Co-ordinator to join our Building Design and Conservation Team to deliver the Local Heritage List project for the New Forest National Park Authority.
The New Forest National Park has a rich built heritage, with 20 Conservation Areas and many varied locally important features. This role provides an opportunity to work within this protected landscape and contribute towards our work to conserve and enhance the features that make the New Forest such a special place.
We have been awarded a grant to develop and update the National Park-wide Local Heritage List, which will include historic buildings, archaeological sites, parks and gardens and public works of art.
The Heritage Project Co-ordinator will focus mainly on volunteer engagement, running workshops and data gathering for candidate buildings/sites for the local heritage list. Excellent communication skills are therefore essential, as well as an understanding of heritage assets and working with data, spreadsheets and Historic Environment Records.
You will promote the project to existing and new audiences, using social media and press releases. You will also develop a Toolkit with heritage colleagues to enable volunteers to gather data effectively and set up training sessions for volunteers, both online and in the field (Covid permitting). There will be a need to quality check data gathered, undertake site visits, write Statements of Significance and provide feedback to the Project Team at regular intervals, with a view to adopting the updated list at the end of the Project.
This role is for a fixed-term until March 2022, requires a valid driving licence and is based in Lymington (with home-working options).
To apply, please refer to the documents to the right and complete an application form. CVs are not accepted.
Closing date: 3pm on 26 July 2021
Interviews: 4 August 2021
