This post will: stimulate and support the flow of good quality applications; work with stakeholders in organisations, agencies and local authorities; support our emerging work in our Heritage Places, and plan and implement outreach strategies targeted at Heritage 2033 priorities. The post will also contribute to the wider work of the Scotland team and Engagement function.
