We are the public body that helps people care for, enjoy and celebrate England's spectacular historic environment.
We protect, champion and save the places that define who we are and where we've come from as a nation. We care passionately about the stories they tell, the ideas they represent and the people who live, work and play among them.
Working with communities and specialists we share our passion, knowledge and skills to inspire interest, care and conservation, so everyone can keep enjoying and looking after the history that surrounds us all.
At Historic England we’re always looking for new ways to promote the past in ways that are inclusive to all and that celebrate the cultural diversity of England's heritage.
To do that, we need people with fresh perspectives, from all walks of life, to join us.
We believe that heritage is for everyone, and so are jobs in the heritage sector. As an equal opportunities employer, we're working hard to improve diversity in our workforce.

The responses are then anonymised and reviewed in a random order by members of our team.
To ensure a fair and inclusive recruitment process for everyone the use of AI or automated tools is not permitted. However, this does not include the use of software, tools or formats to support you if you have a disability and require these to complete your application.
