Heritage Engagement Assistant - Inner Forth Futures

Reference number: A5210119

Location: Falkirk

Your role as Inner Forth Futures Heritage Engagement Assistant will be to help the Inner Forth Futures partnership with delivery of the "Inner Forth Wanderings and Windings" project between March 2019 and December 2019. Funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, "Inner Forth Wanderings and Windings" will catalyse local participation and guardianship of heritage through engaging and empowering local people in co-creating new ways to explore, learn about, experience and interpret the heritage of the Inner Forth. At its core is delivery of eight accessible day-long micro-adventures that meander through the landscape, complementing existing strategic access routes and bringing users into close contact with well interpreted heritage features. Routes will be launched with a collaborative arts project, involving adjacent communities. Smaller one-off events will promote the new routes and the opportunities they offer for exploration of this landscape's heritage.

You will work closely with the Inner Forth Futures Project Officer, our partners and local communities to develop the 'wanderings and windings' trails collaboratively with community groups. In addition, you will help to raise the profile of the area by producing written and visual materials for our website, e-newsletter and social media channels and attending and assisting with delivery of a range of external events.

We are looking for someone with an interest in developing a future career in the environmental or heritage sector. You must have a willingness to learn and to work under your own initiative. This role will include evening and weekend work, sometimes travelling to places with limited access by public transport so a driving license is preferred. Through this post you will benefit from working as part of a dynamic and supportive team and a multidisciplinary partnership. You will have access to a range of training and development opportunities throughout the year to support your personal and professional development.

This post is a 22.5 hour a week, ten month training placement, running from 1 March 2019 to 31 December 2019. It is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

This role is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. You will be asked to declare unspent convictions and cautions at offer of employment stage.
