Historic England is the public body that exists to champion and protect England`s historic environment. We now have an exciting opportunity to join our Listing Group as a Listing Adviser, to work in protecting the historic environment of the South-Eastern counties of England.
Reporting to the Listing Team Leader, you will provide specialist advice for Government through the production of robust and carefully argued listing recommendations. You will work on both reactive cases (responding to external applications) and strategic projects. Together with Historic England colleagues you will contribute to the identification of strategic priorities for future heritage protection.
This is a permanent contract and the post is home-based, ideally in Greater London or the South-East.
You will be an architectural historian or historic buildings professional with considerable experience in the assessment of significance in the historic environment (of no less than 5 years duration) gained in a work environment. Expertise of specific relevance to Greater London and the South-East of England would be an advantage, as would direct experience of the listing assessment process. You will be an excellent communicator, in both spoken and written forms. Membership of an appropriate professional body such as IHBC or CIfA is desirable. A commitment to self-motivation and the ability to prioritise a busy workload and to meet deadlines within a team context will be essential.
We offer a wide benefits package including a competitive pension scheme, 28 days holiday, corporate discounts, a wide range of training opportunities and free entry to English Heritage sites.
Closing date: 19 March 2017.
