This post is internal and open to Renfrewshire Council employees only. Based at Renfrewshire House, Cotton Street, Paisley. A better future. A richer heritage. There's never been a better time to join the Regeneration Team. We are delivering the most ambitious heritage led regeneration programme our region has seen for generations. Heritage is at the heart of the regeneration agenda in Renfrewshire and based on our Heritage Asset Strategy ‘Paisley: The Untold Story', the Townscape Heritage/Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (TH/CARS2) provides an exciting opportunity to continue the regeneration of Paisley through its rich heritage as a dynamic centre for Renfrewshire. The TH/CARS2 project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and Renfrewshire Council and will be delivered over the 5 year period 2016-2021. We have an opportunity for an enthusiastic person to join the team. With the right skills and experience, we'll expect you will have a passion for built heritage and an understanding of the role of heritage activity in regeneration. Educated to degree level or equivalent in Planning, Architecture, surveying or related discipline and with relevant project management experience, you will progress the public realm improvement project, including the procurement of specialist consultants and contractors to design and deliver the project. You will have experience of partnership working, engaging communities and working with consultants in regeneration projects and experience of organising and running public meetings and events. Knowledge of current planning, conservation and enforcement issues and systems and knowledge of Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Environment Scotland is essential along with an understanding of the role of heritage in regeneration. Experience of delivering regeneration within the historic built environment is desirable. You must have effective communication and report writing skills and the ability to analyse complex situations and monitor budget spend and contract progress on grant funded projects including monitoring work on site. The ability to process, evaluate and monitor grant applications is also essential.
