Opportunity with the National Trust – Bodiam Castle

The management team of the National Trust at Bodiam Castle in East Susses has advertised a unique opportunity for one or two students to enrich their knowledge and understanding of how museums or heritage bodies work.

They are looking for students to become members of the Bodiam Advisory Committee, taking a role in decision-making about the Castle and experiencing first hand how the National Trust works with inherited bodies.

Any student interested in a future within museums or heritage will gain enormous insights into the way heritage charities work with trustees and similar bodies. For example, they will gain first-hand understanding of the pressures to conserve and protect the built and landscape environments, whilst also raising necessary funds to carry out such work.

The committee helps the National Trust protect the castle, given to the nation by Lord Curzon. Bodiam is a fascinating site, which, as well as being a fourteenth-century moated castle, includes within its landscape evidence of a key Neolithic, then Roman, then Medieval, cross roads; a Roman Fort; and evidence of medieval fish and Mill ponds. Its wharf area was once a thriving port and it is still possible to travel by boat to Bodiam Castle.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr Michele Moatt at Michele.Moatt@nationaltrust.org.uk with your CV and a statement of interest.
