Assistant Heritage Consultant
With an established portfolio of high-profile public and private sector projects we are looking for an Assistant Heritage Consultant to join our team in Nottingham.
Salary: £20,500-£23,000 plus benefits (depending on experience)
The entry-level post is suited to someone with a passion for the historic environment alongside strong organisational and interpersonal skills. An effective communicator, you must be able to work within a team and individually under supervision.
With a related degree, or similar level of experience, in the historic environment you will support our team of heritage consultants in a range of projects across our main service areas. A core part of your role will be assisting with development case work, through which you will quickly become familiar with prevailing policy, legislation and principles of heritage management. As part of this you will become familiar with the processes of preparing planning documents such as statements of significance and heritage impact assessments.
You will receive training on aspects of heritage management, planning, administration and research across a range of projects from individual developments sites to world heritage sites.
Training is one of the core parts of our business. With the 5-year Essentials Training Programme well established, we are transferring the courses into an online format. You will complete the entire programme as part of your career development at Locus as well as assist in implementing the online element.
We have a flexible approach to our working environment. Due to the nature of the role you will be expected to attend our offices in Nottingham for the majority of the working week. The role will require travel for site visits and very occasional overnight stays.
The post will suit an aspiring heritage professional with an appetite to promote the historic environment’s role in sustainable place-shaping. We’re committed to your career at Locus, and everyone is encouraged to pursue their own CPD and seek professional accreditation.
