Community Outreach Officer
Location: Charlton House and the Collections’ Centre Working across the Trust’s sites and in the community
Contract: June 2021 – 31 May 2022, 4 days a week (Fixed Term contract)
Salary: £25,000 per annum (c£20,000 pro-rata)

About us 
RGHT formed in May 2014 in partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, to strengthen the management of important historic buildings and community assets in the Royal Borough. These include Charlton House and the Greenwich Heritage Centre.

Our purpose is to advance the education of the public in the history and heritage of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and surrounding area; to conserve the heritage assets in the Trust’s care and ensure that these assets – buildings and landscape, collections and archives – and the history of the Royal Borough are shared with as many people as possible.

The Role 
This post is to strengthen the Trust’s capacity to engage local communities in the history and heritage of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and surrounding area. It is to manage a year-long project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund: Meet the Collection. Greenwich has a very diverse community where 90 languages are spoken.

This role will involve taking programs into the community, to allow access to our Collection and stories. Part of this role will also be to develop initiatives and run workshops, to enable people to share their experiences of living through the Covid-19 pandemic and collect these stories for our archive. This role will explore developing on-line engagement, to support the outreach programme.

Who are we looking for? 
To succeed you will need:

  • Proven experience in engaging a range of community audiences in high-quality learning programmes
  • Experience of running community panels or other consultative community forums
  • An appreciation for, and understanding of, the diverse nature of families and community groups in our Borough and the need to be sensitive to different needs, interests and beliefs
  • Proven experience of sustaining effective partnerships with local community organisations.
