Beer connoisseurs rejoice! One council in the UK is searching for a Project Manager to tour and document a 50-mile coastal stretch of pubs.

We’re putting in our two-weeks notice as we speak.

The successful candidate should hold a degree in a relevant field, such as building conservation or archaeology, in addition to at least one year post-graduate experience in the heritage sector.

Funded by Historic England, the Inns on the Edgeproject will involve researching and recording the architectural and social history of public houses along a 50 mile stretch of the Lincolnshire Coast from Grimsby to Boston.

“This is urgently needed to enhance the local historic environment records, raise awareness in response to the threat of pub closures, and help the hospitality sector recover from the pandemic,” the original application states.

In addition to holding a degree, applicants should also possess “excellent communication skills” as well as the “ability to influence and negotiate.”
