Cheers! Here comes the best job in the world – probably

If you could visit all your local pubs, test them out and say which ones are the best – AND get paid for it – you would probably say we were winding you up.

But Lincolnshire County Council is looking to recruit a ‘heritage project officer’, with a degree, to visit pubs in the region as part of the Inns on the Edge project and give feedback for an annual salary of up to £28,672. 

According to the advert, posted by Lincolnshire County Council: “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.”

Inns on the Edge is funded by Historic England, 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 position is for a year, with applications due in by 3 May. The scheme could be rolled out to other areas if successful. So fingers crossed and raise a glass to a nationwide rollout!
