Job Description & Person Specification:

Common Ground: Project Manager – full time, fixed term post, until January 2023 

Common Ground is an exciting new project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It will inspire and equip young people to celebrate their cultural and natural heritage. 

In partnership with Norfolk and Suffolk Wildlife Trusts, National Trust, SHARE Museums East and The Prince’s Trust, Norfolk and Norwich Festival Trust have consulted, designed, tested and refined a youth engagement model to increase and sustain young people’s engagement in heritage. Over 3 years Common Ground will inspire new forms of heritage interpretation, enabling young people to generate and present unconventional ideas about heritage. By the end of 2022 we will have engaged creatively and digitally with more than 3,000 young people and their families, delivered 100 community and heritage-based activities, trained 500 people and supported 1,500 young people to co-create and promote new heritage experiences with artists and designers. With new confidence, insight, evidence and tools, our legacy will empower our partnership, and organisations nationally, to work together, take risks and diversify and sustain youth engagement. 

The Common Ground Project Manager's role is to implement effective programme delivery to meet two aims: to increase and sustain young people’s engagement with heritage and to develop and diversify audiences for local heritage. The main responsibilities include programme management and implementation, recruiting, supporting and training a Youth Advisory Board, managing a programme of training and professional learning for heritage staff and volunteers and young people, commissioning and overseeing creative heritage projects in identified areas and recruiting and managing trainees, and reporting to the Project Board and funders. 

Further information and application forms can be downloaded from the website 

The deadline for receipt of applications is 12 noon on Monday 25 November 2019. 

We anticipate that interviews will take place in Norwich on Thursday 12 December 2019.
