Exciting New Project for Trinity Sailing
Working with the Trinity Sailing Foundation, National Historic Ships UK is looking for five trainees to take part in a unique programme for those who are passionate about a career working on historic boats.
Skills for the Future: Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership 2
Fixed Term Traineeships for 12 Months, starting October 2018
Bursary Payment: £12,000 per annum
The Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership 2, managed by National Historic Ships UK, is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop the knowledge necessary to preserve traditional skills for maintaining, conserving and operating historic boats. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and in partnership with eight host organisations — including the Trinity Sailing Foundation — this programme is ideal for someone seeking a career as a professional seaman spending the season aboard a historic boat at sea.
During the year, trainees will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of environments, including other traditional boats, maritime museums, and educational environments.
Applications are open to all, with particular encouragement for young people aged 18-30, women and BAME groups.
No experience is necessary, just good communication skills, a flexible approach and the ability to work as part of a team. Above all, you must have interest in a long term career in the historic vessel sector.
