Heritage Action Zone Project Officer

Temporary until June 2023

Full time (37 hours per week)

£31,895 - £37,568 per annum (plus essential car user)

Work Location: Hybrid Working 

This is an exciting time for Buxton. High Peak Borough Council has successfully secured £6.6m of Future High Street funding from the Government to renew and reshape the town centre whilst the recent reopening of the 5-star Buxton Crescent Hotel, with historic thermal spa, provides a year-round attraction for visitors.   

The Council is also working in partnership with Historic England to deliver the High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) programme in the heart of the town. This will transform the Spring Gardens area of town and revitalise this historic high street through the promotion and celebration of the town's heritage and the repair and restoration of historic buildings.

HPBC Council is now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced High Street Heritage Action Zone Project Officer to manage the implementation of the programme. The role involves engaging with building owners to bring physical improvements to buildings of historic and architectural interest and managing a grant funding programme to assist with this initiative. The role will involve liaising with a range of specialists, consultants, and project teams to support the delivery of the scheme, and work closely with partners and stakeholders, including the local community, businesses, and owners.

The successful candidate for this role will be a well organised individual with previous experience of managing grant funded programmes. You will understand the opportunities for town centre regeneration and economic growth and you will be experienced in historic building conservation projects with proven regeneration project management. You will be skilled in working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders, with colleagues and contractors.
