Historic Houses represents the UK’s largest collection of independent historic

help our 1,500 member houses to celebrate and champion the nationally
important heritage they care for, protect it for the future and speak with one
powerful voice to government and regulators.

The 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, environmental and cultural contribution to the nation –
welcoming 21 million visits each year, generating £1.3 billion in visitor spend,
supporting 32,000 jobs across the UK and welcoming hundreds of thousands of
education visitors.

We make the case for the importance of heritage to government and regulators,
collaborate with colleagues across the heritage sector, offer technical advice and
guidance to our member houses, and create networks for them to share
experiences and best practice.

We’re looking for a bright, proactive person with a passion for the special places we represent, a keen interest in policy-making, knowledge of parliamentary process and the policy landscape, and accomplished research and writing skills. If you’re energised by the opportunity to make a real difference in the heritage sector, and you’ve some experience of political and parliamentary monitoring and research or similar, we want to hear from you!
