This project gathered, analysed and interpreted labour market intelligence for the conservation sector in the financial year 2012-13. The report aims to provide solid data that could help to improve understanding of the needs and current state of employment for the conservation/restoration profession. Key findings are presented in terms of the size of the sector, the diversity of the workforce, salaries earned, qualifications held and potential skills gaps or shortages.

The project was undertaken by Icon, the Institute of Conservation. It was supported by English Heritage, Arts Council England, and the Heritage Lottery Fund (now the National Lottery Heritage Fund).
