Icon Seeks Partner for New Workforce Research Project – Submit Your Tender Now!

Icon is seeking a consultant to design a toolkit for collecting, analysing and presenting labour market intelligence (LMI) on the heritage workforce.

This spring and summer, Icon will be partnering with the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists in a Historic England funded project to develop a toolkit that will enable the ongoing collection, analysis and presentation of data on the size, composition, skills, employment and education of the heritage workforce.

The aim is to create an accessible methodology and user-friendly survey template that will encourage a common approach to research, fostering consistent and comparable LMI on different subsectors of the heritage workforce. The toolkit will be shared widely across the heritage sector with the aim of empowering organisations with a cost-effective and efficient mechanism to independently conduct workforce research.

The successful tenderer will have demonstrable experience in survey design and/or LMI research and knowledge of the cultural heritage sector.

Please read the invitation to tender for details on how to submit your proposal. The deadline for tender submissions is 12 pm 18 March 2019.

Icon is grateful to Historic England’s Grants Team for providing the funding to support this exciting new project.
