Two Commissioner vacancies announced

English Heritage was established by the National Heritage Act 1983 as the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England. It is the Government’s statutory adviser on the historic environment. This public body receives around three quarters of its income from the Exchequer in the form of Grant in Aid (£131.1 million in 2009/2010). The remainder (£54.6 million) is self generated from commercial activities and fund raising. English Heritage’s role is to champion and care for the historic environment

The Commission is the governing body of English Heritage and comprises the Chair and up to 16 Commissioners.

For these posts, applications are invited from people with an understanding of English Heritage’s work and of the wider environment in which English Heritage operates, and a commitment to its aims and objectives supported by an ability to think strategically and exercise sound judgment.
