This is an exciting opportunity to join our vibrant Masterplanning, Design and Conservation team at Swindon Borough Council.
If you are a team player looking to accelerate your career within a highly supportive and friendly working environment with other specialists in Planning, Urban Design and Ecology, this could be the role for you. We are seeking an enthusiastic and knowledgeable historic environment specialist to bring skills and innovation to help us conserve the Borough’s wealth of heritage assets, whilst supporting sustainable regenerative development.
Swindon Borough has 28 Conservation Areas, over 1,000 listed buildings and 52 Scheduled Monuments. We are home to Brunel’s Railway Works and Workers Village, an area of international heritage renown, which is being restored as part of the wider regeneration of Central Swindon. We have also been shortlisted for a number of awards including the RTPI Excellence in Planning for Heritage category related to the regeneration of the Old Railway Quarter.
The successful candidate will be involved in proactive work across a variety of projects as well providing conservation and design support to areas of the Council, Members and the general public.
You will have a strong appreciation of all aspects of built conservation and design, including architectural history, traditional building construction, urban design and related Town and Country Planning legislation and policy. You should have a relevant post-graduate qualification and eligibility for IHBC Membership and you will need to have the ability to travel around the Borough on site visits. Candidates must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role).
We feel a work life balance is important for our team members. As such Swindon operates flexible working and you will have the opportunity to work from home. The working hours and pattern for this role are also negotiable.
