2. Learning Officer - closing date 6th March 2017 10am

War Memorials Trust works to protect and conserve all war memorials within the UK.

The charity seeks a Learning Officer with initiative, enthusiasm and experience to deliver our Learning Programme. The Programme educates young people about the history and importance of war memorials and their preservation. As a conservation charity which gives repair and conservation grants the Trust’s Learning Programme is the means of engaging tomorrow’s custodians – ensuring the work we do today is continued in the years ahead. The Learning Officer delivers the Programme by producing materials and resources, shared on www.learnaboutwarmemorials.org, and undertaking visits to schools and youth groups to promote the importance of our shared war memorial heritage.

You will have proven experience in teaching or community learning involving young people. Your initiative and ability will enable you to create and deliver the Learning Programme working independently within the Trust’s wider team.

The post is funded up to March 2019 to cover the remaining period of the World War I centenary. Extensions beyond that will depend on funding. The starting salary will be £25,000 p.a. for a full-time role.  

War Memorials Trust is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

War Memorials Trust is preferably looking for a full-time member of staff to be based in its London office. However, the charity has the systems to enable people to work from elsewhere in the UK if an applicant wishes to apply to work remotely. In addition, the Trust would consider applications from those seeking to work part-time (a minimum of 3 days a week would be required) if they can demonstrate how they could deliver the aspects of the role outlined in the job description. The role does require travel around the UK to facilitate school/youth group visits or attend meetings.
