We offer listings of jobs in heritage conservation worldwide - useful whether you are seeking a post in a particular city or region - or are planning an international career.

IIC seeks to foster recognition of the responsibility held within the conservation profession for preserving cultural heritage around the world. The level of skill and knowledge required for such roles should be recognised in status and salary levels.

We support a number of IIC’s Regional Groups and affiliated organisations such as ICON and VDR (Association of Restorers in Germany), to promote parity within the sector, for example by promoting salary guidelines for entry level roles.

Job fraud is also a worldwide concern, please consult this page at ReliefWeb for some tips to stay away from fraud.
