An exciting opportunity for a dynamic, energetic and motivated person to join the Trust and play a key role in caring for a number of nationally significant historic chapels. 

The Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) is the national charity caring for 357 historic churches at risk.  CCT has an international award-winning reputation in heritage conservation and regeneration. For this reason CCT has been contracted to deliver a programme of work for Historic Chapels Trust (HCT). HCT owns and cares for 20 of the most significant Nonconformist and Catholic chapels no longer in regular use by their congregations, all listed at Grade I and Grade II*.  Key to the project is management of the assets, funded by the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) through their Cultural Assets Fund (CAF). 

As a member of CCT’s national Conservation team you will be the main point of contact for all maintenance related issues, liaising closely with contractors, local groups and volunteers. Alongside the Conservation Projects Manager for Chapels you will set-up and deliver the maintenance programme, including regulatory and legal compliance, as well as deal with utilities and insurance of chapels

You will have previous experience in the field of historic buildings maintenance, repair or asset management. You will be an effective communicator, be able to plan and deliver your own workload and also work as part of a team. As you’ll be working at chapels throughout England it is essential you have a full driving license.
