A career in cultural heritage
A career in cultural heritage is about skills, passion, and knowledge. If you like building things, fixing stuff, and understanding what makes a house still stand 100 years after it was built, then there’s a place for you in cultural heritage conservation.
If you are inspired by dialogue with other cultures, discovering the stories of the past, and sharing those stories with visitors, heritage places need you. If you want to be part of a team of professionals who work to conserve heritage, using cutting edge technology and multi-disciplinary approaches, then you have a future in heritage.
Working in cultural heritage means bringing together different skills and knowledge to understand how our past shaped our surroundings and do our share to pass it on to future generations. This is about the past, the present, and the future. You are part of a movement that takes action to address today’s challenges.
