Could you reach out from the Back to Backs?
The National Trust is looking for two new people to help them reach members of BME communities in the West Midlands. The four year “Whose Story” project will include work to involve a wider range of communities in contributing to and understanding the Back to Backs – the biggest project yet undertaken by the Birmingham Conservation Trust. The advert tells us:
To ensure that Black and Minority Ethnic communities are also involved in our unique work across the
West Midlands as visitors, volunteers and employees, we are embarking on an exciting four year programme of work with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
As one of two Outreach Officers you will work with community groups to create new resources and deliver a series of outreach projects at the Back to Backs (Birmingham), Wightwick Manor (Wolverhampton), Croome Park (Worcestershire) and Charlecote Park (Warwickshire).
You will need experience of outreach work with BME groups in a heritage, arts or community context.
The jobs will be based in Birmingham. Applications close on May 25th 2007 and you can find more details by using the search facility at the NT website.
