The Humber Bridge has been an iconic landmark since 1981 and it is now a Grade 1 listed structure. The Bridge is also approaching its 40th anniversary in 2021 and we are starting an ambitious programme of heritage development activity. The idea is to tell the story of the Bridge with and for the community.
The Humber Bridge Board, which is an independent organisation responsible for operating the crossing, has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to set up an exciting new Hidden Histories initiative. We need an experienced project manager to delivery this community venture.
The role will deliver an oral history collection project with volunteering and community involvement at its heart, developing a touring exhibition programme and, ultimately, a heritage festival.
The role is offered on a freelance consultancy basis, to begin in early 2018 and be completed by 30th June 2019. Applications are invited, to include an understanding of the brief and methodology, suitability for the role and a CV. Whilst the successful candidate can be based from home, they will be expected to attend meetings at our Hessle headquarters and travel around the Humber region.
The application pack can be downloaded by clicking below and applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 8th January at 5pm.
