We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic apprentice to undertake our Townscape Heritage Support Officer role, within our Capital Programme and Project Team. This is an exciting opportunity to complete a Level 3 Business Admin apprenticeship qualification whilst gaining valuable work experience at Stockton-on-Tees Brough Council helping to deliver a Townscape Heritage (TH) project in Stockton Town Centre’s Northern Gateway.
The TH project will focus on heritage around the Norton Road area which suffers from vacancy, neglect and decay. It will seek to restore many of the architectural features and thus conserve the physical appearance of the historic built environment of the area. The project, which has been awarded a £1.8m National Lottery Heritage Fund grant, will focus on restoring up to 16 buildings around the National Lottery funded Globe Theatre and Victoria Estate housing development. It will deliver a public realm scheme and run a series of heritage focused complementary activity projects which will raise public awareness of the TH project and the heritage at the Northern end of the High Street.
The role will support the Senior Townscape Heritage Project Officer to organise and deliver the TH Project, particularly the complementary heritage activities and initiatives. These include heritage skills training, working with volunteers, projects with local schools, heritage events, digital projects and an archaeological excavation.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, hard-working, positive individual who is self-motivated and able to work on their own initiative as well as being a team player. The successful candidate will be committed to providing excellent service, be willing to learn and develop, and will not be afraid to try new things.
Apprenticeship opportunities are open to anyone over the age of 16 years with no upper age limit. Please note however, that will be required to meet the entry requirements for the Level 3 Business Administration course which will be delivered by Learning & Skills.
