A local council is looking for a pub-lover to take on a new job touring and documenting a 50-mile coastal stretch of boozers. Sounds good to me.
The Heritage Project Officer role is currently being advertised by Lincolnshire County Council and is offering a salary of up to £28,672 for the right applicant, who should be educated to degree level in a relevant field such as building conservation or archaeology.
The role is part of a pilot project from Historic England called Inns on the Edge and 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, to inform their future management and conservation'.
The advert goes on: "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 Project Officer will help work with colleagues, partners and communities to promote and celebrate the value of Lincolnshire's historic pubs to society, tourism and the local economy through social media, trails and an end of project exhibition.
"Inns on the Edge is intended to be a pilot project, during which ideas and methodologies will be tested and evaluated, with the intention of informing future projects in other parts of the county and elsewhere in England."
As well as being educated to degree-level, or having relevant experience, applicants should also have: "A good working knowledge of the region's heritage, and of the architectural and social history of pubs is desirable.
'As is a good understanding of the social and economic role of public houses in rural and urban communities today, and the current challenges they face."
You'll also need excellent communication skills, experience of carrying out research, organisational skills and time management.
As you can imagine, the job role has proved pretty popular with one person commenting on social media: "I might have to apply for this one myself."
While another wrote: "Wow, I bet the council is going to be flooded with CV's for this one."
A third joked: "Was it Carlsberg who used to boast their beer was 'probably the best in the world.' Maybe this is the best job in the world!"
