Heritage Engagement Co-ordinator

Location: Coventry
Organisation: Historic Coventry Trust
Reference: HCOVT007

We’re looking for an experienced professional to create a transformational activity programme for Historic Coventry Trust’s National Lottery funded ‘Opening the Gates to Everyone’ project.

Historic Coventry Trust is an ambitious and entrepreneurial charity with a mission to act as the champion of all heritage at risk in Coventry and to become its permanent guardian.  We are a pioneering ‘heritage development trust’ on a journey to create a self-sufficient charity using revenue generated from property income to sustain a portfolio of 22 heritage assets which are being transferred to our care from Coventry City Council.  You have the opportunity to join us at a formative stage – helping to create the projects, activities, teams and culture that will ensure we succeed in restoring and reusing Coventry’s heritage for the future.

We have recently secured a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant for ‘Opening the Gates to Everyone’, our project to convert the last two medieval city gates in Coventry to bespoke holiday accommodation and to develop a community-focussed activity programme which will help to regenerate the area.  The story of Swanswell and Cook Street gates is the story of the people passing through them: priors, earls, soldiers, workers, refugees and migrants.  This part-time role will create an inspiring activity programme that unlocks all these stories and brings life back to the adjacent Lady Herbert’s Garden.  This project will nest within a wider activity programme being developed by Historic Coventry Trust.

If you have experience in creating and delivering activity programmes and oral history projects, developing education resources, running volunteering programmes, excellent project management skills, the ability to work collaboratively  and a passion for involving people in unlocking stories of the past, then we would love to hear from you.
