Are you interested in working in the heritage sector?
Are you looking for a way to gain experience?
The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway has three trainee posts available as part of the Interpretation and Boston Lodge Project funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund. We are currently looking for a Works Administration Trainee.
The project has three key strands: interpretation across the railway, developing skills, and conserving buildings. This is a particularly exciting time with the recent World Heritage Site announcement for the Slate Landscapes of North Wales with which the project has close links and shared ambitions to make a positive impact in the area.
The 2 year full-time traineeships, starting in September and attracting the living wage, are part of the skills strand of the project and this is an excellent opportunity for the right individuals to develop skills in a heritage environment where there are few formal courses.
This traineeship will suit a highly organised candidate with qualifications at A-level or NVQ 3 who already has good organisational and IT skills but who would like to work in an engineering environment and gain experience in what is required behind the scenes to keep a large engineering works running smoothly. They will work with the Boston Lodge Works Administrator.
What we are looking for:
We can offer you:
Whilst we would welcome applications from anyone with the right to live and work in the UK we are keen to promote the use of the Welsh language within the workplace, and the development of heritage skills within Wales therefore we would encourage applications from those who speak or are learning the language, and those who come from Wales and / or trained in Wales and are looking for opportunities to use and develop their skills within the heritage sector in Wales.
