To help heritage and conservation employers and practitioners in these pandemic times, the IHBC is continuing its NewsBlog reader updates on the diverse opportunities posted on our ‘IHBC Jobs etc.’ service, with posts calling for conservation skills across project management and design, including ‘Historic Building Climate Change Adaptation’, at Historic England (HE) and closing very soon.
Even in these hard times we have been advertising posts from across all the practice areas encompassed in the IHBC Areas of Competence, the model the IHBC uses to manage and assess competence in conservation practice.’
IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘Numbers on our ‘Jobs etc’ service currently are of course well down, but employers still seek to fill the familiar wide spectrum of roles and skills gaps. Even in these hard times we have been advertising posts from across all the practice areas encompassed in the IHBC Areas of Competence, the model the IHBC uses to manage and assess competence in conservation practice.’

‘Posts from the public, church and third sectors are among those highlighting what is perhaps the most sensitive area in conservation’s management of change, ‘Intervention’. These include the new ‘Historic Building Climate Change Adaptation’ at Historic England – closing very soon – to project work at Bath Preservation Trust; the Diocese of Salford’s ‘Heritage Project Manager’, and Haringey Council’s Project Officer for their High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HAZ).
More focused on the understanding and care – or the ‘Evaluation’ and ‘Management’ areas of competence in the IHBC – are sought at The Twentieth Century Society, which seeks a Caseworker.

In conservation practice, the IHBCs specification of skills and competences do of course overlap, and that point is made absolutely clear in the post of Conservation & Design Officer, sought at Dorset Council. Indeed that specification of the design skills needed in multidisciplinary conservation professionals is one that we do not see often enough. Such skills tend to be more implicit in the kind of Senior Heritage Consultant role sought by Avalon Planning & Heritage – currently a rare post form the private sector perspective. As in the membership application forms for IHBC accreditation, a critical awareness of design – and communication – issues would usually be sought that that level.
In summary, recent posts include those below (all with different application dates, some closed and with links inactive):
- Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council: Project Manager – High Street Heritage Action
- Historic England: Head of Historic Building Climate Change Adaptation
- Bath Preservation Trust: Project Manager Beckford’s Tower
- Haringey Council: High Streets Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) Project Officer
- Avalon Planning & Heritage: Senior Heritage Consultant
- Diocese of Salford: Heritage Project Manager
- Dorset Council: Conservation & Design Officer
- The Twentieth Century Society: Caseworker
