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-western and West Midlands counties of England.
The Role: 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 in Bristol or the West of England. Travel will be required throughout the South West of England.
The Person: you will be a heritage professional with considerable experience in the assessment of significance in the historic environment gained in a work environment. Expertise of specific relevance to West of England would be an advantage, as would direct experience of the listing assessment process.

A commitment to self-motivation and the ability to prioritise a busy workload and to meet will be essential.
