Around 100 construction jobs to be created by £18m Beamish Museum expansion
Are you a highly-skilled and time-served construction worker? Beamish Museum is looking for tradespeople to help make history with the construction of its £18 million expansion.
The ‘Remaking Beamish’ project is the largest in the museum’s 48 year history and will see 30 new exhibits added.
This will include a 1950s town and farm, as well as a Georgian cottage and coach house.
Bricklayers, stonemasons, general labourers, joiners, electricians and plumbers are being asked to get in touch.
Construction apprenticeships will also be created and will provide an opportunity to learn alongside skilled mentors.
Work is under way on the development which is set to be finished around 2021.
Up to 30 tradespeople will be working on four building sites at any one time.
They will be employed as part of the museum’s in-house buildings team.
