Jobs, training and volunteering

Looking for a change in 2024? Why not come and learn about Grimsby’s fishing heritage and help produce a range of collections using exciting and interesting objects.

The Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre is launching its new project and needs your help. The Dynamic Collections Project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and in partnership with North Lincolnshire Museum, will be looking at the thousands of objects in the museum, working to make them available online for public viewing.

The Dynamic Collections project is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, they have been able to start work organising a range of items detailing Grimsby’s history.

Alongside this, volunteers will have the chance to uncover fascinating stories about a range of items and get an unprecedented insight into the history of North East Lincolnshire.

Those who take part with also receive a range of training to ensure the well-being of these artefacts and learn how to create digital content which will be made available to the people of North East Lincolnshire and beyond.

To help prepare for an impressive exhibition, the Dynamic Collections team will help to repackage, organise and research objects. Anyone who wishes to volunteer will be required to commit to a weekly three-hour session at the museum or at home.

Dynamic Collections Project Officer, Alistair Eachus said: “It’s an exciting time at the Fishing Heritage Centre and we need your help to make this project the best it can be.

“Throughout the process, myself and the team will be going through a host of interesting objects steeped in local history. After all the hard work spent collating the pieces, there will also be an exhibition to showcase what we’ve put together.”
