Fixed term for two years due to funding.
Hull City Council is working hard to improve the housing and environmental landscape in Hull through the delivery of our City Plan.
Beverley Road has been the main northern route into Hull since the medieval period, making it one of the City’s most important historic gateways. It is also a conservation area boasting a number of important buildings mainly from the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Unfortunately, Beverley Road has suffered from economic decline in recent years and is currently on the national ‘At Risk’ register.
The Council is committed to bringing Beverley Road back to its former glory and has secured a £1.6m National Lottery grant, under the Heritage Lottery Fund Townscape Heritage scheme, to help local property owners pay for much needed conservation repairs that will improve the historic streetscape and help bring historic buildings back into use. Are you the right self-motivated person to help us realise our vision by project managing the effective delivery of the scheme?
We are seeking to appoint a dedicated project officer to lead on our Townscape Heritage Scheme which is currently in its second year of delivery. The post will be a full-time position for a period of two years.
You will be qualified to degree level and/or have equivalent experience in a relevant discipline such as conservation, archaeology with buildings archaeology, heritage management, architecture, urban regeneration or planning. You will also have a proven track record of successful project management of conservation and/or regeneration grant funded projects, along with experience of consultation, negotiation, contract management and a good working knowledge of the management of grant schemes. You will have excellent communication skills and will liaise with property and business owners, local residents and community groups to promote the project and encourage take-up of the Townscape Heritage grants available.
This is an exciting opportunity to ensure that the important historic environment of Beverley Road is regenerated as a legacy of Hull’s tenure as UK City of Culture 2017.
The Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment.
