Community & Education Engagement Officer
Salary £17,196 to £18,854
Temporary until 31 March 2018
The Doncaster 1914-18 project is an exciting 4.5 year project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, exploring the First World War and its connections to Doncaster and the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. The Project encourages the people of Doncaster, and anyone with a connection to the area, to uncover and share their own First World War stories. A series of events, exhibitions and a new website explore the role of the borough, its people and the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry in the conflict, both at home and on the front line.
Central to the Project is a new digital resource, which not only makes First World War collections from Doncaster Heritage Services (comprising Doncaster Museums, Archives and Local Studies) available digitally for the first time, but encourages local people to share their First World War stories via a new online community archive. The Great War on Tour, the Project’s pop-up Museum, travels around the borough, encouraging communities to find out more about the First World War and share their stories.
Working as part of the Project team, the post holder will be responsible for delivering the community and education-related activities of the Doncaster 1914-18 project. They will be expected to work with a team of volunteers to help develop audiences for heritage across Doncaster and to increase individual and community engagement with Doncaster’s heritage.
