Are you passionate and knowledgeable about historic places? Do you have experience of managing heritage projects or grant schemes? Are you keen to engage with the local community to regenerate their High Street?

About the role:

The Council has secured Historic England funding to create the Swaffham High Streets Heritage Action Zone: a heritage-led programme that combines heritage, culture, community, enterprise and regeneration. High Streets Heritage Action Zones (HSHAZ) is Historic England's national scheme investing £95m to provide support for historic high streets and the communities who use them so they can adapt to the challenges they face. 

We are now seeking a Heritage Action Zone Project Manager to project manage and deliver this exciting programme jointly funded by Breckland District Council and Historic England to improve and enhance Swaffham Town Centre.  For this role the post holder will possess experience within a relevant discipline such as Architecture, Planning, Conservation or Regeneration.

The post offers the chance to work in this dynamic, multidisciplinary team, make a clear impact and bring positive change to Swaffham for the benefit of its present and future communities.

A bit about us:

At Breckland Council we have embraced the Government's agenda to modernise local government. Our approach is to lead change rather than follow it, and to add the best value we can to our communities. We achieve this by developing our employees to their full potential, providing them with the relevant knowledge, equipment and authority to carry out their duties.

Our employees enjoy excellent conditions of service including a local government pension scheme, 25 days holiday increasing with service (plus bank holidays) and flexible/agile working policies.

During COVID-19 our employees are predominantly based from home with minimal staff working in our office due to the role they do or a need to be in the office. We envisage this continuing into 2021 when we will be assessing how we use our offices going forward and work with our employees to understand what works for them and the role they do.
