About Hannah

I’m Hannah, from the North West of England. I have had a passion for Scottish history for as long as I can remember and am always planning the next adventure. I studied History, Museums and Heritage at University and moved to Scotland after I graduated, working for the National Trust for Scotland. I then moved back home to Preston and worked at a Maritime Museum and local Museum in front of-house roles.

However, I knew my passion was for conservation and so I began to pursue a career within the sector. I found this traineeship, and it combined my passion for history whilst also having the opportunity to gain hands-on experience within a conservation role.
