Environment Trust logo£35,000 per annum
Full time, contract up to 3 years
Based in Twickenham TW1

The Environment Trust aims to inspire love of local places. We are an established landscape and buildings preservation trust caring for both the natural and built environment and connecting to people of all ages and backgrounds throughout south west London. We aim to enhance people’s lives through inclusion, volunteering and learning.

This is a new post and an exciting opportunity to forge diverse partnerships to take forward a range of specific heritage projects. We are seeking an experienced conservation specialist with a relevant degree or equivalent to manage designated heritage assets on the Historic England Heritage at Risk register or those potentially at risk in south west London. This will involve working closely with Historic England, Local Authorities, site owners and local communities.

You will apply the ethos of ‘constructive conservation’ and make effective use of Historic England’s Conservation Principles.  As an effective project manager with an eye for detail, as well as an inspiring advocate for heritage, you will be comfortable operating at a high strategic level. You will deliver our existing commitments in Richmond and Wandsworth to develop local participation in understanding and celebrating heritage. You will enable volunteers to develop heritage skills through offering training and advice and seek to develop sustainable funding for ‘Heritage at Risk’ assets. This post is an opportunity to drive forward conservation practice and policy throughout the Environment Trust’s area of operation.

IHBC membership is desirable.
