Grade 9 £28,672 to £32,234 pro rata
County Hall, Durham
An opportunity has arisen for a Heritage Listings Outreach Officer until 31 December 2021.
Durham County Council has been selected as one of twenty-two areas to take part in the national Local Heritage List Campaign. Our proposal was based on piloting the creation of a Local Heritage List in a minimum of 8 pilot areas across the County. The pilot must be completed by the end of December 2021, with an evaluative report presented to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) in January 2022.
You will lead on delivering an inclusive programme of community engagement in the pilot areas of the County, encouraging participation by a wide range of people from each area, including young people, and supporting the wider project team to carry out consultation, recruit volunteers and deliver training. You will also contribute to the design and development of a publicly accessible web-based platform, ensuring that it is user-friendly and supporting its testing by the community groups.
The role does not require heritage expertise, although some knowledge would be helpful. Instead, you should be a great communicator with an interest in people’s stories, a good listener and someone with experience of working with a range of community groups, including young people and hard to reach groups. The role will require financial record keeping, but it has no financial accountability.
Applicants should hold a Degree or equivalent together with having experience of designing and delivering inclusive community engagement activities and running workshops.
Interviews are scheduled to be held via Microsoft Teams between 22 and 24 June 2021.
