Our mission is to connect people to their heritage in everything we do – whether through the conservation of historic buildings, delivering improvements to the public realm, developing our new climate emergency programme or engaging people directly with the rich heritage of their city.

As a trustee you will be responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation and stewardship of public and charitably given funds, supporting and adding value to the work of its professional team in conservation, engagement and capacity building.

We wish to attract people from a broad range of backgrounds, demographics and cultures to steer and inform our work. We are aiming for inclusivity, richness of experience and diversity in our workforce and on our Board, to ensure that Edinburgh World Heritage reflects the diversity of the world we live and work in, We particularly welcome applications from young people or those interested in applying for their first trusteeship.
