To help heritage and conservation careers and employers across the UK, the IHBC regularly updates NewsBlog readers about the diverse career opportunities posted on our ‘IHBC Jobs etc’ service, and recent offerings stretch from London (e.g. design at Islington and project management at the Charterhouse) to Perth (skills etc.), so sign up for free alerts today and ‘stay in the know’ with the IHBC’s ‘Jobs etc.’ service!
IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘Reflecting the usual wide spectrum of roles represented on our ‘Jobs etc.’ service, currently we are carrying posts from across all the skills areas encompassed in the IHBC Areas of Competence.’
In the public sector we can see Conservation Officer roles looming large as ever, with a strong design thread across this round: West Lindsey, with a Townscape Officer role jobshare; Enfield’s Heritage and Conservation Advisor, and Islington’s Conservation & Design Team Manager and Design & Conservation Officer, as well as North Norfolk’s Conservation and Design Officer.
Meanwhile Kettering Borough Council seeks a post of a type with a very specific title – as a High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ), Project Manager – but again requiring skills clearly rooted in longstanding conservation project management skills.
A more specific range of skills – still representing specific specialisms in the IHBC’s Areas of Competence – are being called for across the third, voluntary and church community sectors. Here demand for conservation skills ranges across planning (Oxford Preservation Trust’s Assistant Heritage and Planning Officer), skills and outreach (Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust’s Skills Training and Outreach Officer), church buildings (Oxford Diocese’s Church Buildings Officer), and project management (English Heritage’s National Project Manager and Senior Manager as well as The Charterhouse charity’s call for a Project & Conservation Manager) all in addition to specialist surveying roles (Landmark Trust’s Regional Building Surveyor).
Meanwhile private sector and government posts, as ever, reflect the broader spectrum of priorities that inevitably respond to, in turn, client and public priorities. These include employers and roles such as Historic England ‘s Assistant Inspector of Historic Buildings and Areas; James Mackintosh Architects’ Heritage Consultant; Hutton + Rostron search for Specialist Historic Building Surveyor; Locus Consulting’s posts for Principal and Junior Heritage Consultants (two vacancies) and the advertisement from the main sponsors of the IHBC’s 2020 School – and IHBC’s HESPR community member – the Heritage Collective, calling for a Heritage Consultant.
‘Of course any and all roles would benefit from built and historic environment accreditation that aligns with the international conservation standards, notably that provided by the IHBC.’
