Eastside Community Heritage are offering a traineeship worth £15,000 to a young person living on the Gascoigne Estate, but first need to crowdfund the money for the wages.
Eastside Community Heritage are a history and arts organisation and they are looking for a trainee to help with interviewing, research, design, website development, community outreach, school workshops, talks and fundraising.
The trainee, must be between the ages of 18 and 25, will get an NVQ accredited qualification in Cultural Heritage.
Former trainees have gone on to jobs in museums, archives and heritage projects.
Judith Garfield, who is organising the scheme, said: “We think it is important to provide opportunities to that estate.”
