Shipshape Heritage Training Project (SHTP 2)
Practical Traineeships for 12 Months
Bursary Payment: £12,000 per annum
We are looking for people who are passionate about a career working on historic boats and maritime heritage to take part in this unique project. This traineeship is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn and develop the traditional skills for maintaining, conserving and operating historic vessels.
Organised by National Historic Ships UK and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this programme is ideal for someone seeking a career in maritime heritage, as a maritime curator, shipkeeper, conservator or a professional seafarer.
In partnership with eight host organisations, the Scottish Fisheries Museum is offering a Museum Ship-Keeping training opportunity. Based largely at the museum, during the year you will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of environments, including maritime museums, traditional operational boats and working boatyards. This programme is ideal for someone seeking a career as a maritime curator, ship-keeper or conservator.
We welcome applications from people of all social backgrounds and particularly encourage women, black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates and those aged 18-30 as these groups are currently under-represented within the historic ships and heritage sector. Candidates from outside this age range will still be considered.
No experience is necessary, just good communication skills, a flexible approach and the ability to work as part of a team. Above all, you must have interest in a long term career in the maritime heritage sector. So if this sounds like you visit the NHSUK website for more information and to apply, or please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
