Opportunity for a Heritage Project Manager to join the team

We're looking for a Fixed Term Heritage Project Manager to join the team to work on an exciting new project called A Waterman’s Race

Thames Festival Trust is an arts organisation which delivers festivals, stand-alone commissions, river-based events, heritage projects and education programmes. We have a twenty-year track record of using learning, culture and creativity to amaze, excite and inform. Our work helps bring communities together, originally around the River Thames, and now in cities across the UK and the world. Our previous heritage projects include Life Afloat and London’s Boatyards. The Trust is committed to producing excellent work and we strive to improve access and increase diversity across the Arts & Culture sector.

The Project Manager will work with our Director, Adrian Evans, and will be responsible for all elements of the project’s administration and delivery, ensuring that the project meets its objectives and that it comes in on time and within budget. A Waterman’s Race focuses on the social history of working class men and women’s involvement in the sport of rowing on the Thames tideway during the last half of the twentieth century and it explores the important place that the Race for Doggett’s Coat & Badge has within this context.
