Luke joined Jura Consultants in December 2013. Since then has worked with a range of clients to help them consider their future direction and potential projects, which in many cases included helping them to navigate all aspects of the Heritage Lottery Fund process. Prior to joining Jura Consultants Luke has eleven years experience working for the Heritage Lottery Fund, working with over 300 projects in Scotland with a combined Heritage Lottery Grant value of over £100 million. With experience in all of the heritage sectors, Luke has worked with projects involving historic building repair, museums, galleries and archives, regeneration proposals, industrial and maritime projects, and public parks and landscapes. Whilst at Jura some of the clients Luke has worked closely with include the National Museum of Flight in East Lothian on their successful second round application to HLF, a major grant application for the Museum of London and a strategic project related to Discovery Point in Dundee. In addition, other projects include a number of historic houses and public parks throughout the UK. Most recently Luke worked with Maybole Community Council and South Ayrshire Council to help guide them to successful HLF and HES grant applications that should unlock several million pounds for Maybole’s High Street.
Outside of work Luke is busy studying for an MBA. He also maintains a keen (obsessive) interest in golf by playing regularly at Longniddry Golf Club, also helping to run the affairs of the Caermount Golf Society through his role as Secretary. Other interests include cycling, running, crossfit, squash and music.
