The Tavernor Consultancy, a leading townscape and built heritage consultancy based in central London, provides advice and produces reports on design issues and planning policy related to developments in historic contexts. Most of our projects are in London and many are large scale, high profile schemes. We work closely with leading architects – see our website.
We are looking for a conscientious person with at least 2-3 years of experience working in a heritage, architecture, urban design or landscape related role. You will know how to research and write about the history, architecture and character of places and individual buildings through on-line, library and archive sources and site visits. The role involves writing appraisals of sites and their surroundings in line with current planning policy and relevant guidance, producing related plans, liaising with other members of the project team, and providing research and administrative support to four directors.
We need someone with relevant work experience, excellent report writing and editorial skills, good communication skills and knowledge of MS Office and Photoshop. We are a very small team, and so a flexible attitude and the ability to self-motivate is essential.
You will have a degree in architecture, history or the humanities, environmental science or planning and preferably a post-graduate qualification in a heritage or design related subject. Knowledge of UK heritage-related planning policy and guidance, Environmental Impact Assessment and/ or IHBC membership is desirable.
