In search of an oral history project coordinator…

Last month, we heard the wonderful news that our new oral history project, ‘From the Grassroots: An Oral History of Community Politics in Devon’, will go ahead thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project, as you may have seen already, will create a sound archive of local politics in Devon from the Second World War until the present day (see our recent blog for more). Now, we need a project coordinator to help us run the project!

The successful candidate will be responsible for coordinating all aspects of ‘From the Grassroots’. They’ll need to recruit and support a team of volunteers, coordinate training and interviews, create materials for use in events and on the website, and organise a programme of events. We’re looking for someone with some previous experience in heritage projects and enthusiasm for the project.

If you think this could be you, all the details of how to apply are now available on our website. Closing date for applications is Tuesday 10th September and we expect to interview on Tuesday 1st October.

If you don’t want to apply for the post but still want to get involved, then you can either watch this space for more on how you might do that, or drop me (Emma) a line (at and I’ll make sure you’re kept updated.
