Help build up the picture of who lived in Brighton & Hove in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, by transcribing historical documents relating to local streets. You can join our current team focused on the North Laine area, or focus on your own street.
We have numerous collections that require cataloguing, some paper-based and some 3D. If you are attentive, have basic IT skills and are interested in local history and design, we'd be delighted to have you assist us.
Are you a trades person interested in traditional building skills? Whether you are a roofer, a bricklayer, a plasterer, a carpenter, an electrician or a plumber, we could use your help to improve and protect our historic building fabric. We offer training in crafts such as lime plastering, ornamental plastering, lead plumbing, traditional joinery, and painting and graining.
We often we need assistants who can undertake the set-up, support work and take-down activities associated with expert tradespeople working working with us to repair the Town House. This role provides a great opportunity to gain some basic skills in various practical disciplines.
There are always a wide range of basic tasks that need doing at the Town House and specialised projects that require volunteers. Although opportunities change with time, we are always interested in people who can assit with basic office maintainance, the writing of articles and the design and production of web pages. Equally, we are keen to recruit those interested in working as House guides and IT professionals - who can assist us with website development (especially if you have a knowledge of Drupal and or database design).
