Full time (37 hours a week) until March 2022 dependant on successful completion of the apprenticeship.
Full training and support will be given to enable you to complete a Level 3 Cultural Heritage apprenticeship.
Ever thought of working in a museum – looking after the objects and art that tell stories about people, Preston and the wider world, in the past and in the present? And sharing those stories and objects with our visitors and communities?
If this sounds like you, take a look at this apprenticeship which will give you the skills and knowledge to help develop a career within the cultural and heritage industry.
The Harris is Preston’s city-centre museum, art gallery and library and we’re working hard to make sure it’s as welcoming as possible for everyone.
We want more people to see and experience more of our wonderful collections, which is why we want to recruit an apprentice to help us. This is your chance to develop a career in museums and get brilliant hands-on experience of museum work while earning a salary.
You will spend four days a week working with our collections and communities and one day reflecting on your experience and working towards a Level 3 Diploma.
Come along to an informal session with our existing staff on Friday 31 May at 2pm (new date) to see what a collections assistant does. You’ll get to see behind the scenes at the Harris, handle some of our amazing collections from Victorian dresses to Stone Age axes and talk to the people you’ll be working with.
You can get in touch with Sue Latimer. Give her a ring on 01772 905403 (leave your number and a good time to ring back if she’s not there) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Read more in the ‘More information’ document Preston is a great, diverse, multi-cultural city and we want the Harris staff to reflect our wider communities better.
We’re looking for someone who will help to change the face of the museum profession by taking a different route into museum work. So if you love the thought of working in a museum but University isn’t the right pathway for you, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.
