CAPITAL PROJECT MANAGER – REIMAGINING GREYFRIARS: 800 YEARS OF STORIES IN THE MAKING (PART TIME 20 HOURS pw, FIXED TERM FOR AN INITIAL 12 MONTH PERIOD WITH SCOPE TO EXTEND FOR A FURTHER 24 MONTHS)
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of Heritage Lincolnshire’s next building preservation trust project at Greyfriars in Lincoln. We are seeking an experienced project manager to manage the development of the capital works programme which has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The Greyfriars building has been owned by the city of Lincoln for over 400 years. It is the only surviving building of a Franciscan Friary which was established in 1230, and has had a life as a private home, school, house of correction, jersey school and the early home of the mechanics institute. Last used as the county museum for almost a century, it closed 15 years ago and has been empty since. It is Grade I Listed, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and on the Heritage at Risk register.
City of Lincoln Council (CoLC) have been working with Heritage Lincolnshire (HTL) since 2017 to develop a new use for the building which is both eligible for capital grant funding and will be sustainable in the long term. The proposed option is to repair and refurbish the building to tell the story of the site alongside developing the building as a flexible space that could be used for for temporary events, exhibition, conferencing and possibly offices or catering.
Funding for a development phase has been received from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, matched with other public funding streams and the work is intended to inform our round two submission due in March 2022.
Heritage Lincolnshire (HTL) is a local charity with over 27 years of experience in the sector. We work across the historic county of Lincolnshire to save heritage at risk, engage communities with their heritage, and promote best practice in the sector. HTL undertakes consultancy services across the East Midlands and our archaeological unit, APS, works nationally. As a small charity, HTL offers an exciting opportunity for early career professionals who would like to gain a wide range of experience and have a material impact on the organisation they work for.
HTL would support an applicant working towards a suitable accreditation, with a wealth of opportunities in the day-to-day duties of this role to develop the skills required to demonstrate competency for membership.
