About us

Edinburgh World Heritage (EWH) is an independent charity with the aim of ensuring the city’s World Heritage status is a dynamic force that benefits everyone. 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. EWH has recently adopted an ambitious climate emergency strategy in June 2020 that aims to address the challenges posed by climate change to the World Heritage Site and its communities.

About the role

This is an exceptional opportunity to play a key role in the city’s conservation in fresh ways - developing sensitive and practical solutions to support the transition of historic buildings located in the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site (WHS) towards net-zero carbon.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Energy Efficiency (Retrofit) Specialist to deliver innovative energy efficiency projects, carry out targeted research and produce guidance aiming to reduce carbon emissions of historic buildings - while preserving their historical and architectural significance. Key themes comprise energy improvements to the building fabric, low carbon heating systems and combination of both.

Applicants would ideally have 2 or 3-years’ experience in construction projects involving energy efficiency retrofit and a keen interest in historic buildings. This position will offer the rare opportunity to develop thorough and practical skills in historic building retrofit in a stimulating working environment and prominent historic city. Support will be provided to the postholder to develop their expertise.
