Appointment of Commissioners (Three Posts)
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. 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.
Founded by Royal Warrant in 1908, we now receive our principal funding from the Welsh Government as a Welsh Government Sponsored Body. Through our work we:
- Research and record archaeology, buildings, landscapes and maritime remains from prehistory to the present;
- Care permanently for Wales’ rich archive of the historic environment in the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW);
- Support people to learn about our rich heritage through online resources, community outreach and publications;
- Provide impartial advice and information to help people manage the historic environment sustainably and ethically.
Building on our recent successes and achievements, we’re now looking to grow and develop our organisation for the future. 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 new members who have direct experience or expertise at a senior and/or strategic level in one or more of these areas:
- Development of IT strategies;
- Archaeology, particularly industrial archaeology;
- Working with communities, particularly hard-to-reach groups.
