Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings – Online Training Coordinator – Online/remote working placement opportunities

Historic England are working with partners, Shropshire Council and the Friends of the Flaxmill Maltings, to bring Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings, home of the world’s first iron framed building back in to use for a third century. As part of the project we are offering a programme of work placements across various aspects of the project. At the moment, due to Covid-19, these placements are taking place online.

Online Training Coordinator – Online/remote working placement opportunities

We are offering two work placements to help us develop online training materials that will introduce non-specialist audiences to the site and its conservation.  Participants will have the opportunity to be part of Historic England’s flagship project, working with the Flaxmill Maltings Project Team as well as our Sector Resilience and Skills Department, whose aim is to build capacity in the heritage sector.

We are looking for applicants who have great communication and IT skills and an interest in both heritage and learning and development. If that sounds like you, these placements will be a great opportunity to gain experience on a major conservation-led regeneration project.

The work placements will be full-time, Monday to Friday, for 2 weeks from 28 June to 9 July. As these placements will take place online, participants will need to have access to a reliable internet/wi-fi connection. A bursary will be paid to the successful candidates.

How to apply

Please read the work placement specification for further information about what is involved and what skills and interests you will need to take part. If you are interested in applying you should complete the application form and send it to by 10am on Wednesday 16 June.

Interviews are expected to be held on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 June (online).
