New Heritage Solutions – Project Administrator

New Heritage Solutions C.i.C is seeking to appoint a Project Administrator ( Part time- 15 hours per week) to support the development and delivery of our project activities as part of a Heritage Lottery Fund project – Harwich Haven:  Surrender to Sanctuary.

The successful candidate will support the management and delivery of the community heritage project Harwich Haven-Surrender to Sanctuary, assisting the Project Manager and Project Officer in their work, enabling local communities to deliver the volunteer-led community research and activity aspects of the project; ensuring the project meets its milestones and delivers the required outcomes to time and budget.

In particular the administrator will assist the Project Manager in recording project activities and outcomes when reporting to funders, complete financial information and payment details to support managed budgets, record information for evaluation, and support the project team in encouraging local communities, groups and individuals to become actively involved in and investigate the heritage.


This is a two-year project of public research and interpretation around the Harwich Haven ports of North East Essex and East Suffolk (notably Harwich and Felixstowe) which explores a defining passage of world history through two internationally significant anniversaries: the centenary of the surrender of the German U Boat fleet in November 1918 and the arrival of the first Jewish refugee children known as the Kindertransport in December 1938.


Harwich Haven – Surrender and Sanctuary will be a unique commemoration which engages the wider public with questions about how wars start and end and how ordinary people are affected by them. The project will empower people to deliver community-based, inter-generational research, including: landscape research, genealogy, the construction of a mechanical representation of the U-Boat threat, walking trails, a refugee exhibition on the region’s railways, video, archive films in an historic cinema, debates, art installations and oral history.


The two year project will see the focus of delivery of our activities across North essex and South Suffolk, with wider activities in 2019 around the east of England. It is envisaged that the Project Administrator will be based within this area.


Interviews for this role will be held in Harwich and Dovercourt on 28 February 2018.
