The position of Heritage Trainee (Wales) has recently been appointed to Cultural Heritage Management graduate, Izabella Maar. This six-month position, which has been made possible through funding from Cadw and the National Lottery Heritage Fund is aimed at helping a recent graduate or returner-to-work gain professional experience and skills in the heritage sector.
Izabella graduated from Heriot-Watt University with an MSc in Cultural Heritage Management with Tourism in December 2022, where she completed research into place and landscape identity in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, as well as looking at other aspects of the heritage and tourism sectors in Wales and beyond. Izabella is based in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (formerly known in English as the Brecon Beacons National Park), and has a keen interest in Welsh culture and heritage, she is especially interested to be involved in the work that the Heritage Trust Network does with community organisations.
“I am excited to get started working with the Heritage Trust Network; heritage has such an impact on an area and its community, something that the Network clearly acknowledges and values. Wales has both a rich heritage and a great sense of community and I am keen to be part of an organisation that supports and brings those together.”
Izabella will be working alongside other members of the Heritage Trust Network team to support and advise heritage organisations around Wales through peer-learning and access to resources, such as our Toolkit. We look forward to seeing how Izabella takes on this role and welcome her warmly into the Heritage Trust Network team.
