The aim of the post is to support and develop our Network for community organisations, social enterprises and heritage trusts in Northern Ireland working to successfully rescue, restore, find new uses for, and manage historic buildings and spaces.

Heritage Trust Network is the membership body for independent community organisations, charities and social enterprises that are saving, restoring and managing historic buildings, parks, gardens, canals and railways. The Network currently has 24 members in Northern Ireland, including 21 organisations and 3 individual members.

The aim of the post is to support, and develop a network for, community organisations, social enterprises and heritage trusts in Northern Ireland working to successfully rescue, restore, find new uses for, and manage historic buildings, spaces and structures and thus to contribute to community and economic regeneration, social cohesion and wellbeing.  This will be achieved by providing enhanced support to Network members in Northern Ireland, bringing many more organisations into membership and facilitating networking, learning and development among new and existing members.

The Development Officer will be supported by the Network Chief Executive, other UK staff and the Northern Ireland Committee. The post-holder will be expected to balance their time between work with existing members, recruiting new ones and networking/advocacy.  They will be expected to work closely with the Architectural Heritage Fund’s Support Officer for Northern Ireland.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working in a cultural, community or membership organisation, involving development work, signposting, event management and partnership building. They should have a broad-based interest in the historic environment and built environment matters generally and should be knowledgeable about the context they will be working in in Northern Ireland.
