Hull Maritime is looking for an experienced Community Engagement Officer

Would you like to work on one of Hull’s major regeneration projects?

We're looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated individual to work alongside our project team to deliver the community engagement element of the Hull Maritime Activity Plan.

With responsibility for the development and management of key stakeholder and partner relationships, you will engage communities across Hull and the wider region with the city's remarkable maritime story.

The role involves the delivery of a diverse range of activities such as taster workshops and community theatre projects as well as facilitating traineeships and employability skills training opportunities. You will also deliver a wide range of events alongside the audience and engagement team that feed into Hull's wider cultural programme.

A good understanding of the importance of continuous evaluation is essential as is the ability to deliver specified outcomes to tight deadlines. Experience of delivering community engagement activities within the heritage and cultural sector would be an advantage.

You will be based in Hull city centre and the role will also require the successful candidate to deliver activities across the city and region. Occasional evening and weekend events and activities form part of the project, so a flexible approach to working is essential.

Hull Maritime is jointly funded by Hull City Council and The National Lottery Heritage Fund. It is a heritage-driven, transformational project drawing on Hull’s unique spirit and sense of place. It aims to promote and protect Hull’s incredible maritime history, architecture and collections.

Telling the story of Hull’s remarkable journey as a global powerhouse for trade and cultural exchange, this project will highlight the city’s connections to the rest of the world through its role as a major port.

Presented across four important sites and two historic vessels, each housing significant collections, they comprise some of Hull’s most precious heritage and together tell stories of invention and ingenuity, perseverance and endurance, triumph and disaster.

As well as securing the future of Hull’s historic assets for us all, the project will also regenerate and re-connect the heart of the Hull to its historic waterfront, the place where the city’s maritime history began.

Funded by National Lottery players and the people of Hull, the project puts Hull’s maritime story at the heart of its future as a city destination.

This is a fixed term role until 31 December 2024. Closing date 6 May 2022.
