Can you help us to deliver the best possible historic environment services for the people of Wales?
The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales is the unique, independent national archive and investigation service for Wales, dedicated to the authoritative recording and interpretation of our rich historic environment. Located within the National Library of Wales building in Aberystwyth, we operate at arm’s length from the Welsh Government, with skilled staff providing professional advice and expert information to the public. We’re committed to delivering the best possible historic environment service for Wales, fostering greater understanding and care for our historic buildings and landscapes, and recognising the potential for heritage to help improve people’s lives.
Building on our recent successes and achievements, we’re looking for people to join our Board of Commissioners who are prepared to help direct, challenge and constructively review our work. We’re committed to strengthening and diversifying our board, and so are looking for a Chair and two new Commissioners who have significant experience or expertise at a senior and/or strategic level in one of these areas:
- Chair: The Chair is the guardian on behalf of the Crown of the spirit of the Royal Commission and ensures that the Commission’s activity conforms to the duties enshrined in the Royal Warrant under which it is constituted. We wish to recruit a Chair who can provide strategic guidance and build positive relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.
- Twentieth-century architecture: We wish to recruit a Commissioner with a firm understanding of buildings and constructional techniques of the period and with the strategic vision to help us prioritise our work and advise the Commission on the potential significance of building types, individual buildings and planned townscapes.
- Maritime heritage: We wish to recruit a Commissioner with experience in this field to advise the Commission on strategic priorities to ensure that the significance of Wales’s maritime heritage is understood, promoted, and given adequate protection.
The closing date for receipt of applications is 16 September 2018. Application forms received after this date will not be considered. It is expected to hold interviews on 26 November for Chair and the 27/28 November for Commissioners.
