New school delivery staff required

May 24, 2014

We're expanding our delivery into schools over the next 12 months, and will therefore be adding to our school team before September.

This will be a part-time post for the first 6 months with an option to expand to full time. Salary based upon experience but exceeding the living wage. The successful applicant will be a great communicator of history, and doesn't necessarily have to have history/archaeology academic qualifications (though it would be an advantage). You'll have had experience in delivering sessions to children in schools/museums/galleries etc and be a generally all-round awesome person who understands the balance of working hard and having a laugh in a work environment. 

To register an interest, please send a CV to  - we will not be taking phone enquiries about this position at this time.

Just a few notes:

  • This is a position working with children, if you're not a fan of kids (or they're not a fan of you!) then it's wise to give this one a miss.
  • You'll need to be able to drive (or be driving by September!!) - own vehicle not essential.
  • You'll be required to have yearly Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service checks.
  • Candidates with interest/experience in later historical periods are encouraged to apply (Victorian, WW1, WW2, etc)
  • You will be delivering multi-period workshops, and whilst all of our current staff have their own personal research interests, we all have a broad understanding of British history (and prehistory!) and you'll be required to have the same.
  • We're a family-friendly company  and there's a possibility for this position to work around childcare commitments if you're the best.
  • A knowledge of Merseyside and/or Cheshire would be an advantage.
  • Try and get a 'feel' of how Big Heritage operate and make sure you are comfortable with our values of People, Past and Planet.

Hi Big Heritage, will be sending you a CV regarding presenting history in schools etc. I have an interest in Roman, British/Scottish and Napoleonic history, WW1 as we have a VC in the family from Southport and a couple of interesting stories in the family from WW2. I have already portrayed a roman character to one or two schools in Ellesmere Port and own a full roman legionary kit including weapons and armour.

I hail from Liverpool but live in Bebington and have a working knowledge of Merseyside having also done some training as a guide.

Professionally I am a television cameraman and have access to filming and editing kit for programme making.
Will be in touch.
