Heritage Trust Network is delighted to announce a new graduate has been appointed as our first Heritage Trainee.
Looking to begin a career in the heritage sector, Fae Clark has recently completed an MA in Sustainable Heritage Management at Aarhus University in Denmark and is looking forward to using her research skills in this position. She will be working for the next 6 months developing on-the-job skills and getting to know the sector through training at the HTN.
Fae says: “Passionate about our shared heritage in the UK, I am looking forward to gaining a wide perspective on the work that the Heritage Trust Network does and to sharing my experiences online! I will be developing content for the HTN digital channels and supporting staff in a range of tasks. I am excited to gain skills in event planning and organisation, developing the Network branches and to taking on other responsibilities in the role. Mostly, I am looking forward to attending site visits, learning about the conservation of specific historic buildings and meeting other people in the heritage sector.”
Previously, Fae has worked and volunteered for a number of museums and cultural institutions where she has guided visitors. She also has experience of running artistic community workshops and hopes to keep a focus on community perspectives while learning about historic buildings. The Heritage Trainee post is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thank you to players of the National Lottery.
