Heritage Officer (fixed term)

Heritage Officer (fixed term)

Wednesday, 12 June 2024, 12.00pm

The Ulster Orchestra (“UO”) is Northern Ireland’s only professional symphony orchestra. For more than 50 years, the UO has made a significant cultural, economic and social contribution to Belfast and NI, providing everyone here with different ways to engage in excellent and unforgettable concerts and shared music experiences.

In 2023 the UO purchased Townsend Street church, school building and memorial hall (“Ulster Orchestra at Townsend”) which sits on the Peace Line between the Shankill Road and the Falls Road after relocating there in 2022.

With this move, our strategic plan is to create an accessible space for rehearsal, recording, performance and learning and community engagement through music, collaborating with others towards the economic and cultural development of the area and creating a sustainable purpose for a heritage site.

The Heritage Officer will play a key role in this, coordinating our Townsend heritage project through a programme of story-collection, working across a wide section of the local community as well as members of the Ulster Orchestra Society. This will culminate in the creation of a permanent heritage exhibition to be displayed at Townsend as well as ongoing living heritage projects and celebration events connected with the project. This is a fixed term position, for a period of up to 12 months initially.
