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 two new Commissioners who have significant experience or expertise at a senior and/or strategic level in one of these areas:
- Architectural historian: We wish to recruit an architectural historian or archaeologist to the Royal Commission to help us prioritise our places of worship work and to advise the Commission on the most effective means of achieving our objectives as well as acting as an advocate for these key components of the historic landscape in Wales.
- Public policy: We wish to recruit a Commissioner with experience in public policy and the heritage. You will pay a critical role in advising the Commission on appropriate activities and the kinds of initiative that a heritage body can undertake to support social, economic and wellbeing aims. You will also help us to foster links with political stakeholders and decision makers and act as an advocate for the Commission’s achievements, so that we are valued and esteemed as an organisation that leads the field in progressive heritage policies.
The closing date for receipt of applications is 17 January 2020. Application forms received after this date will not be considered. It is expected to hold interviews on 25 and 27 March 2020.
