Edinburgh World Heritage is looking to appoint a Conservation Projects Officer to play a key role in the conservation of our remarkable historic city.

Our Conservation Funding Programme, funded by Historic Environment Scotland, helps to retain the authenticity and integrity of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site. We offer grants to owners and organisations to help improve the condition of their building or public space. The programme also supports traditional skills, empowers communities and improves people’s sense of ownership for the historic environment.

We are involved in a diverse range of projects including tenements, shopfronts and major historic set-pieces. The Conservation Projects Officer will support the delivery of these projects, as well as work with people and communities to ensure that they are fully engaged. The Conservation Projects Officer will also lead on the delivery of the Maintenance Programme.

Edinburgh World Heritage 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, or engaging people directly with the rich heritage of their city.
