Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust Lower City Mills, West Mill Street, Perth PH1 5QP Scottish Charity No. SC 003139
Historic Environment Officer
(Fixed-term 1 September 2020 - 31 August 2021)
JOB DESCRIPTION
1. Background
PKHT is a charity established in 1988 with the aim of conserving and promoting archaeology and architectural heritage of Perth and Kinross, for the benefit of residents, visitors and future generations. The Trust achieves its objectives through the development and delivery of projects, the administration of grant schemes, the provision of information and advice, and a programme of outreach events and publications. The Trust’s vision, mission and priorities are outlined in our Strategic Plan 2017-22.
As an ongoing core activity, the Trust maintains the Perth and Kinross Historic Environment Records (PKHER) for the area. A key use of the HER is to inform the planning archaeology service provided by the Trust to Perth and Kinross Council, through a Service Level Agreement, to ensure that all new development is carried out in line with national planning policy. In addition to providing the evidence base for planning advice, the HER also informs wider land management change, such as agri-environment and forestry schemes, the basis of community heritage projects, and has a key role in the delivery of the Trust’s Archaeological Research Framework for the area, being developed over 2019-2021.
The HER is a dynamic geographic information system (GIS) record of archaeological sites and historic buildings with associated reference material and has been recently migrated to a new HEROS system, after 2 decades of development within an Exegesis/Arcview Environment. HEROS is an open source Digital Asset Management System developed by the Welsh Archaeological Trusts and utilises an InkGIS web-based platform. HEROS can be assessed by all Trust staff, and allows for additional users, such as volunteers or student placements to contribute to enhancement projects.
2. Job purpose

1. Maintenance and enhancement of HER data;
