Hi ! My name is Charlotte and I have always wanted to work in the heritage sector. I have always been passionate about history, more so ancient and medieval, hence have a degree in it was always the plan. Although it didn’t really pan out as it expected, I wasn’t presented with the experience in the heritage sector of which I sorely desired and assumed. After not really knowing what to do with my career for two years after graduating, I came across an advert for an MA whilst browsing the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. From not knowing how to obtain the knowledge I needed for it to be given to me (over the course of this following year of course) was and is an exciting prospect. Whilst waiting to begin I did a few months of volunteer work with Sarehole Mill and that was a great experience to top it all off. I finally feel as if I am heading in the right direction of one day being a History Curator or even Collections Manager.
