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 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. During the year you will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of environments, including traditional boats, maritime museums and spend a season aboard a historic boat at sea. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and in partnership with eight host organisations, this programme is ideal for someone seeking a career in maritime heritage or as a professional seafarer.
We welcome applications from all and particularly encourage women and black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups who are currently under-represented within the historic ships and heritage sector. Submissions are also sought from those aged 18-30, although candidates from outside this 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 historic vessel sector. So if this sounds like you visit our website for more information and to apply, or please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
