Glasgow Building Preservation Trust

£44,628 to £48,215

Glasgow is a vibrant, historic city filled with character and impressive architecture, the city attracts tourists, events, and is the stage for the filming of various films and television shows. The historic buildings of Glasgow are a key feature of the city, they give a sense of place to locals and offer visitors stunning skylines and streets to explore.

Glasgow Building Preservation Trust is a registered charity which was established almost 40 years ago with the mission to rescue, repair, and restore historic buildings at risk across the city. GBPT works in partnership with a range of community organisations and Glasgow City Council to deliver sustainable conservation projects for various types of historic buildings, contributing to the wider regeneration of Glasgow. Without the dedicated work of the GBPT many historically significant buildings would have been lost.

The Trust now seeks a new Director who can work with the staff team and board to deliver regeneration and restoration projects across the city of Glasgow. The Director will be responsible for developing and delivering key projects whilst maintaining focus on the strategic objectives of the organisation and ensuring key relationships and partnerships are maintained. The Director will explore opportunities for growth and act as an ambassador for GBPT, working to widen the trust’s network of collaborators and supporters, securing funding for key conservation projects.

The ideal candidate will bring a collaborative and professional leadership style and will possess excellent experience of leading teams. The ideal candidate will also have a track record in managing capital/preservation projects and be comfortable with public speaking. The candidate will also have an appreciation and understanding of built heritage, planning and conservation.
