Passionate about pints? You could get paid to visit pubs

Have you ever wished you could visit pubs for a living?

While it might sound too good to be true, a council is in fact hiring someone to do that very thing.

Lincolnshire County Council is looking to hire a Heritage Project Officer, whose main responsibilities will include, as the job description says, ‘researching and recording the architectural and social history of public houses’.

The successful applicant will be focusing specifically on pubs ‘along a 50-mile stretch of the Lincolnshire Coast from Grimsby to Boston.’

The job, which is a full-time, one year fixed-term role, comes with a salary between £25,991-£28,672 for the year.

Yes, that all means you’d be getting paid to go to these pubs, but it wouldn’t be a case of going on the lash from 9am to 5pm each day.

The role has been created to help deliver the council’s Inns on the Edge project, the aim of which is to raise awareness to help temper pub closures, boost historic records, and aid pubs in their recovery from the financial strain of lockdown.

It’s pretty serious stuff, and whoever the successful applicant is will need to have a wealth of relevant experience outside of the sesh.

They’ll need to have degree in a relevant subject (such as history, archaeology, or building conservation) or equivalent experience, and the job spec says you should also have at least a year’s worth of experience working in heritage and, ideally, local government.

It’s ‘essential’ that whoever gets the job has excellent communication and negotiation skills, as well as the ability to ‘inspire and enthuse different types of audiences’.

The job necessitates a driving licence and access to a car.

It’s also good if you know a good bit about the area as well as the history of pubs and their socio-economic role in local communities.

If that sounds like you, you can apply via the Lincolnshire County Council jobs site.

You’ve got until May 3 to apply.
