Inverness City Heritage Trust is charitable company focussed on the conservation and revitalisation of the city’s urban environment. Working with Historic Environment Scotland, Highland Council, and a range of local organisations, it effectively brings together local interests in buildings and streetscapes of heritage value. The Trust organises and enables a varied programme of work, so far providing grants and advice to over 260 projects including the ambitious Academy Street Townscape Heritage Project (ITHP).

The Trust now wants to recruit up to four committed and enthusiastic individuals to its board to manage the adoption and delivery of a new strategy and forward plan. The plan will reflect a changing heritage environment, and place increasing emphasis on the Net Zero agenda.

Trustees, who contribute their time and expertise on a voluntary basis, should have an active interest in the historic built environment of Inverness. We want a lively and diverse board of Trustees, and although no prior experience is necessary, we would be interested to hear from individuals with skills and experience in:

  • PR and communications
  • Financial management
  • Technical knowledge of repair and conservation of buildings
  • Education and training with an emphasis on traditional building skills
