Advice Assistant Apprentices – Historic Environment

Historic England is excited to share with you an inspiring opportunity to complete a Historic Environment Advice Assistant Apprenticeship (HEAA) over the course of 27 months at Historic England. It is a Level 4 apprenticeship – equivalent to a foundation degree or first year of university.

What will you be doing?

You will be helping to support the Regions teams as they research, visit, and assess the condition of a range of historic places including buildings, landscapes and archaeological remains. You will assist the work of colleagues providing direct advice and recommendations to internal teams, external partners in the public and private sector and members of the public who own, live in and use historic places to protect them for future generations.

Your apprenticeship will be divided between 80% work based training and 20% study with an approved training provider. Your training element is a specially designed programme of learning that will include regular site visits, training sessions and online learning. In addition, you will complete a range of professional courses to enhance your career development.

Historic England is recruiting for one HEAA apprentice in each of our six regional offices to commence September 2019. Follow the link to find out more.

Closing date for applications is Monday 17 June 2019 at midnight.

You will receive notification of the outcome of your application no later than Wednesday 26 June 2019.

If you are someone who enjoys variety in your work you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be spending your time working with and supporting lots of different teams, there really is no such thing as a typical day.

“What’s amazing is dealing with proposals to such a diverse range of buildings and the people who use them. A recent week took me to the depths of Cold War underground bunkers with Ministry of Defence personnel, to an Arts and Crafts country house in splendid isolation amidst the rolling hills of the Vale of Gloucester, to the Victorian industrial heartland of Gloucester’s dock-side warehouses, and finally to the English Heritage-owned medieval tithe barn in Bradford-in-Avon. How’s that for variety!’’ Samuel
