Historic Preservation Specialist, Rosin Preservation (Kansas City, MO)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Historic Preservation Specialist
Contributed By: Elizabeth Rosin
Website: http://www.rosinpreservation.com/hpspecialist/

Rosin Preservation, a Kansas City-based historic preservation consulting firm serving a national client base, is hiring a Historic Preservation Specialist.

This position will staff a variety of preservation projects, with a focus on historic resource surveys, eligibility assessments and National Register nominations. Tasks will be varied and multiple. Qualified candidates will have experience researching and writing property histories, historic contexts, and arguments for significance for determinations of eligibility and National Register nominations while meeting deadlines and upholding the varying requirements established by state historic preservation offices. Specific assignments may include: field work for historic resource surveys; archival research (on line and/or in library); data entry; writing building descriptions, property histories, historic contexts, and statements of significance; making public presentations of National Register nominations to city and state review boards; site visits to buildings before, during and after rehabilitation; documenting building conditions; preparing state and federal historic tax credit applications; and representing the company in communications with clients, designers, and state and federal reviewers. This is not a design position, a photography position, or a museum/collections position.

The position will require some overnight travel (all travel costs reimbursed). A reliable vehicle and a valid driver’s license are also required. The position involves visiting dilapidated buildings, which may present physically challenging conditions, such as uneven surfaces; lack of working elevator, electricity, heating or cooling; mold; animal droppings; etc.

Rosin Preservation wants to meet candidates with a Master’s degree in Historic Preservation and 2 to 5 years post-graduate professional work experience. A degree in a related field (such as Urban Planning, Public History, Architectural Studies, etc.) will be considered if the candidate meets the practical experience requirement.

Excellent written and verbal skills and an understanding of the National Register Criteria and the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation are critical. Experience with the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and with a database program (such as Microsoft Access) is essential. Familiarity with Adobe Photoshop is preferred. Experience photographing buildings, landscapes and architectural details using a digital SLR camera is also desired. (A personal camera is not required.)

Preferred candidate should be able to demonstrate past success working independently and seeing projects through multiple stages of development, revision, and presentation. The ability to balance the requirements of multiple projects at one time is a must. Candidate must have previous experience working in a small-office environment; be well-organized and easy-going; have good time-management and inter-personal skills; be able to work in both quiet and active environments (i.e. periods of focused production and the crunch of meeting deadlines); and be willing to ask questions and seek input. Most importantly, the successful candidate will mesh with our company culture.

The HP Specialist will be a full-time (40 hours/week) permanent position beginning in late summer 2018. The specific start date is flexible.

Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and a resume to Elizabeth Rosin, info@rosinpreservation.com. Deadline for application is Monday, June 25, 2018 @ 8:00 am CDT. Background check will be conducted before hiring.
