Worcestershire lottery funding to lead to five new graduate vacancies

Published: Wednesday, 02 March 2011   Category: Public sector

Five new graduate vacancies are to open in Worcestershire after funding was secured for a local jobs push.

The 15-month long positions will begin advertising later this year, after the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded the companies £148,000.

Under the project name Nurturing Worcestershire's Treasures, the graduate opportunities are in establishments involved in local culture or history.

Anne Jenkins, head of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) in the West Midlands, said that the aim of the funding was to change lives.

"When the recession kicked in we thought very hard about how HLF could make a difference to people's lives," she said.

"The answer was an innovative and ambitious programme focusing on equipping people with practical skills to help them secure future employment."

The graduate vacancies will be at the Elgar Birthplace Museum, the Hurd Library at Hartlebury Castle, Worcester Cathedral Library and Archive, George Marshall Medical Museum and Worcester Porcelain Museum.
