This is an exciting opportunity to play a highly influential role in managing the historic environment through the planning system as an Inspector of Historic Buildings and Areas. Joining the friendly and high achieving London and South East team, you will be directly involved with the conservation of the most significant heritage, allowing it to be enjoyed for generations to come.
You’ll be a key member of a multidisciplinary Development Advice team working across this dynamic region that includes all of Greater London and counties in the south east from Hampshire and Oxfordshire to Kent. Your principal role will be providing advice in response to pre-application and formal consultations for listed building consent and planning permission. The role will focus either on London or the South Eastern counties, but with scope for flexibility across the region. Using your planning expertise and extensive knowledge of historic buildings, areas and designed landscapes, you will work under your own initiative to implement our ethos of Constructive Conservation to manage change to the most significant heritage assets in the region.
To be successful in this role you will have a developed understanding and experience of architecture and urban design in historic places, with a degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. You will have broad and extensive experience of managing change to the historic environment through the planning system and evidence of dealing positively with a range of stakeholders. With confident and persuasive written and oral interpersonal skills you will be equally comfortable working as part of a team and taking the lead.
We offer a wide benefits package including a competitive pension scheme, 28 days holiday, corporate discounts, free entry into English Heritage sites as well as flexibility to create a strong work-life balance.
