Job Details

Passionate about heritage, energised by policy-making and driven to make a difference to the future of the UK’s historic environment? Join our team!

Historic Houses represents the UK’s largest collection of independent historic houses, castles and gardens, many with open doors waiting to be explored. The 1,650 historic houses and gardens we represent are not static museums but living, dynamic examples of our past, present and future. They make a hugely important economic, social and cultural contribution to the nation – welcoming 26 million visits each year, generating £1 billion in visitor spend, supporting 33,000 FTE jobs and welcoming hundreds of thousands of education visitors.

We are looking for a bright, proactive Policy Officer with a passion for the special places we represent, a keen interest in advocacy and sharp attention to detail.

Our dedicated policy team works closely with government, stakeholders and politicians across the political spectrum to shape and influence policy for the benefit of heritage and tourism. This is an exciting time to join us; we’ve recently launched a new brand, and are busy implementing a dynamic public affairs strategy to raise our profile in Westminster, Holyrood, Cardiff and Belfast.
