Are you passionate about protecting our heritage?

As the Council’s Conservation Officer you will be joining the Forward Planning team at a very exciting time for the future of Stafford Borough - and playing a key role in ensuring our historic buildings and areas are part of that future.

We are looking for an enthusiastic conservation specialist who is highly motivated and can inspire communities across the Borough, with over 800 Listed Buildings and 30 Conservation Areas. You will be able to handle the unique mix of urban and rural conservation issues and a variety of new challenges.

As well as providing advice on specialist and multi-disciplinary projects, you will work closely with owners on planning and listed building consent applications. You will also prepare heritage management statements and Conservation Area Appraisals – and make sure we meet our legal duties on all aspects of the historic environment.

You will have a degree in planning, conservation or a related discipline, with qualitative experience and membership of a professional body. Recent experience of project management and securing bids to deliver heritage schemes would also be an advantage.

If you are looking for an interesting and varied role in a friendly and professional team this is the opportunity for you. We offer attractive benefits and conditions including a salary based pension scheme, payment of professional fees, free staff parking, flexi-time, training and development opportunities.

Starting salary is dependent on qualifications and experience. For an informal discussion please call  Alex Yendole on 01785 619536. Further details on the skills and experience required for this permanent role can be found on our website.
