Chiltern Open Air Museum
We are an independent Museum and charity with a collection of 34 historic buildings, including a traditional working farm set in 45 acres of traditional Chilterns landscape.
Following a successful award from Heritage Lottery Fund for Skills for the Future, the Museum is pleased to be recruiting a Heritage Building Trainee. This new training scheme offers high quality, paid museum/heritage work placements for 18 months and trainees will leave the scheme with a range of work-based training and a wide variety of heritage building and rural skills to support future careers in these areas.
These traineeships require a practical aptitude for learning new physical skills and a desire to work outdoors in all weathers implementing those skills in construction, as well as a love of historic buildings and landscapes. The nature of the work will be very physical for the majority of the traineeship.
Individuals will be expected to work independently once they are deemed competent by their supervisor. They will also be expected to take on responsibility for themselves and their work where appropriate.
