The National Lottery Heritage Fund uses money raised by players of the National Lottery to inspire, lead and resource the UK’s heritage to create positive and lasting change for people and communities, now and in the future. Since 1994 it has invested over £245 million in more than 1400 heritage projects in Northern Ireland.

We are now seeking to appoint two new committee members. The committee makes decisions on grant applications between £250,000 and £5 million. It provides a crucial perspective to the UK Board on the funding and heritage priorities for Northern Ireland. Members meet people involved in heritage projects, represent The Fund at openings and events and act as advocates for the value of heritage to modern life.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community regardless of background, religious belief, gender, disability, ethnic origin, political opinion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or whether or not you have dependents. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a knowledge of NI’s diverse and exciting heritage. Candidates with experience in natural heritage, built heritage, or cultural heritage are especially sought.

We are looking for Committee members who are passionate about putting people at the heart of this heritage.

Appointments are made on the basis of an individual’s skills and abilities, but we do take into account how each applicant would complement the skills and area knowledge of current committee members.

For these roles, we are especially seeking:

  • Expertise in natural heritage sector and biodiversity
  • Expertise in built or intangible heritage
  • Proven experience of working in diversity and inclusion

You’ll represent The Fund at openings and events, acting as an advocate for the value of heritage to modern life.

The closing date for applications is Friday 31st January 2020.
