About Cadw

Cadw is made up of around 200 people working across a range of disciplines to achieve our aim of an accessible and well-protected historic environment for Wales.

Just under half our staff complement are based in our headquarters at Nantgarw, near Cardiff, and we have a small team based in Llandudno Junction. Around 100 of our people are custodians — working on-site at the historic Welsh monuments in Cadw's care — or are members of the in-house teams that undertake conservation and maintenance at our sites.

We have specialist staff, including Field Monument Wardens and Historic Building Inspectors who work from home.  Many of our staff are regularly ‘out and about’ around Wales, visiting sites, meeting the public or local authority representatives – little of Cadw’s work can be done only from behind a desk.

Cadw is an integral part of the Welsh Government, working to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, Ken Skates AM.
