This is an exciting opportunity to develop your fundraising skills within a small team.

You will have excellent communication skills – both written, on the telephone and face-to-face – and be able to confidently engage with supporters and colleagues in a professional and friendly way.

You will need an excellent eye for detail, be comfortable working with numbers and have experience of working with a database.

This is a fast-paced and challenging role, and a great opportunity to join a dynamic and ambitious organisation.


Technical Co-ordinator

Do you have a background in buildings and systems maintenance? Can you demonstrate a good working knowledge across a range of trades and disciplines?

Brunel’s ss Great Britain is looking for an experienced maintenance professional to join the technical services team as a technical co-ordinator. Liaising with contractors, staff and volunteers you will ensure that the ship, buildings, equipment and systems are effectively maintained.

As well as responding to maintenance issues as they occur, you will be expected to participate with the rest of the technical services team ensuring that the site is presented to the highest standards.

A relevant trade qualification would be advantageous but the ability to demonstrate a logical and methodical approach to problem-solving is just as important.

This is a varied and challenging role, and a unique opportunity to share the responsibility of preserving Brunel’s masterpiece.
