Cultural Heritage Officer
The multi-partner South West Peak Landscape Partnership Scheme (SWPLPS), funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has been developed to deliver a range of cultural & natural heritage and people & communities projects across the South Western part of the Peak District.
The Peak District National Park Authority, on behalf of the Partnership, is now looking for a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual to lead delivery of the scheme’s cultural heritage/archaeology – Barns & Buildings Conservation and Small Heritage Adoption projects.
Working with the Landscape Partnership team and other partner organisations, this diverse role includes managing conservation works of historic environment structures (e.g. field barns); engaging members of the public, land owners and land managers in studying, learning, understanding and conserving the archaeology and heritage of the South West Peak and supporting volunteers in cultural heritage and archaeological projects. In addition you will also work closely with community groups and oversee and manage volunteers in the field.
You must have relevant experience and should be well organised, resourceful, have an interest in the heritage and archaeology of the Peak District and have a real skill in communicating with a wide range of people and communities. Your experience of working with volunteers will help you to enthuse and encourage local groups and individuals to be involved in the project.
