Working for the Commission

The Royal Commission has a permanent staff of around thirty-five people who work full time or part time at its offices in Aberystwyth.

Over many years the Commission has developed a skilled and highly qualified workforce and it has become a recognised centre of excellence in heritage fields. Most staff fulfil specialist roles, for example in archive administration, archaeology, photography, graphics, education, architectural history or information management. Their work is guided by the Secretary (CEO) of the Commission and by its Chair and Commissioners.

Any vacancies are advertised in the press and on this website, including occasional opportunities for temporary appointments. The Commission also seeks to offer work experience, training placements and opportunities for volunteers.

We are an equal opportunities employer and it is our belief that everyone should have the same opportunities for employment and advancement based on their abilities, qualifications and suitability for the job.

Equality of opportunity is embedded in our employment policies and procedures including recruitment, training, promotion, performance management, induction and probation.

This means that no applicant for a job with the Commission or any employee will receive less favourable treatment because of their age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marital status, pregnancy or caring responsibilities, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation or because they work part time.
