With over 30 conservation areas, around 2000 listed buildings, and national treasures such as Warwick Castle, Kenilworth Castle, and Stoneleigh Abbey, we can provide you with a unique and exciting heritage environment to work in.

The successful candidate will provide advice and guidance on heritage matters to a wide range of customers, advise on applications, compile a local list of historic buildings, and co-ordinate the annual Heritage Open Days event.

Assistant Conservation Officer: Project Manager for a New Canal Conservation Area (Fixed Term Contract 12 months)

The successful candidate will manage a major conservation project to establish a new canal conservation area.

For both positions you will need to have some knowledge of historic building and conservation area principles, practice and law, along with work experience in protecting the historic built environment.
