Curious Minds and The Atkinson, Southport are looking for a creative and motivated young person to develop an “Adopt the Collection” fundraising pack for supporters of The Atkinson.

Are you aged 18-25? Are you currently facing challenging circumstances that are preventing you from kickstarting your career?

During this six-month placement, the Fundraising and Communications Assistant will develop a unique “Adopt the Collection” fundraising pack. This is a newly created role to work closely with our collections and marketing team and will be critical in helping us to develop a new resource.

The successful candidate will gain valuable and practical experience while utilising their own skills to create a new resource and will gain skills in project management. It will involve research, photographing the items selected, writing the content, using graphic design skills to create the packs and creating a delivery plan to promote the campaign. We would love to hear from people who feel they are ready for a new challenge and have an interest in gaining a unique work experience opportunity. To find out more please read the Job Overview.
