We are looking for a dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced Heritage Consultant to join our London and South-East regional team, based in London. This is an exciting opportunity to help manage change to significant places and to contribute to the conservation and enhancement of historic sites. We are looking for someone who can work as part of the regional team, as well as take on responsibility for their own project work and, where appropriate, manage contributions by other staff and sub-consultants.
You will work under the supervision of a designated line manager within the Heritage Consultancy Team. You will provide heritage advice and guidance, undertake research and assessment of buildings and sites within the historic environment, and compose and contribute to various reports such as Conservation Management Plans, Historic Buildings Appraisals and Impact Assessments. You will manage small scale projects in your own right, prepare fee proposals and contribute to larger bids.
Excellent written and oral communication skills are vital, as is the ability to adapt to a variety of circumstances. A can-do attitude and an ability to engage creatively and originally in all aspects of the job are essential. Contributing to the practice and the promotion of good heritage conservation will extend beyond project work. Work will be mostly within the region although some longer distance travel and overnight stays may be occasionally necessary.
Previous experience of working as a heritage consultant in a commercial environment is vital. With a degree in a related subject, you will have at least 2 years’ experience carrying out archival, desk-based and on-site research and producing well written documents, managing your own workload and running projects. Experience of costing and budgeting for work and building your own work winning network would be advantageous. Membership(s) of professional institutions, such as the IHBC or CIfA and a UK driving licence (for travel to remote sites) are desirable.
