Traditional Skills Officer


Glasgow City Heritage Trust has been supporting the repair and restoration of Glasgow’s historic environment since 2007. Over the last 12 years, we have invested £12 million in the conservation, enhancement and promotion of Glasgow’s built environment, helping around 2,000 people and organisations to repair their historic buildings. 

Our historic environment plays an important role in successful neighbourhoods and high streets which are vital as a local point for social and economic interactions and sustainable communities.

In addition to encouraging maintenance and repair of the historic built fabric, the Trust’s remit includes providing local skills training and fostering understanding of the historic built environment in communities. Understanding your local heritage results in pride in the historic assets which in turn means that people will look after their built environment.

An exciting opportunity has become available for an entry-level professional to support the implementation of the Trust’s traditional skills and material programmes for the benefit of all people living and working in and visiting Glasgow.

You will be time-served in a traditional building trade, ideally with experience in more than one trade OR educated to degree level or equivalent in a relevant area (such as architecture, conservation, construction, surveying) plus practical conservation experience.
