About the employer

Established in 1985 Cornwall Heritage Trust (CHT) is a charity with the aim of “preserving and strengthening Cornwall’s unique heritage”. We do this through our education programme; grants schemes and heritage promotion activities and events; as well as through the ownership or management of historic sites. Based at Krowji in Redruth we are a small team with big aspirations. We own or manage twelve historic sites around Cornwall, which vary in their size and complexity, and aim to add one new property per year as we move forwards. This means that we are able to establish an in-house sites maintenance team and you will be part of that as CHT’s first apprentice.
