Agricultural and Craft Conservator
Conservation Officer (Industrial Collection)
National Museums and Galleries of Wales

Agricultural and Craft Conservator
Salary: UKP18,500 - UKP26,650

    We are seeking to appoint a qualified conservator to care for
    the extensive agricultural and craft collections of the National
    Museums and Galleries of Wales, held at the Museum of Welsh
    Life.  The museum is an open-air site with numerous re-erected
    buildings, galleries and a manor house.

    If appointed, you will have responsibility for the cleaning and
    conservation of the NMGW agricultural and craft collections,
    both on display and in store, working as part of an
    interdisciplinary team of conservators.  The ability to work
    both alone and as part of a team is essential.

    You should hold a recognised conservation qualification,
    specialising in the conservation of metals and also have
    knowledge of engineering, as the collection includes some
    working machinery. Experience of working within a museum
    environment would be an advantage.

    We are also seeking to appoint a conservation officer to work as
    part of the conservation team at the Nantgarw Collections
    Centre. The collection is a broad mix of objects, mostly from
    the early 20th century, ranging from hand tools, oil lamps, and
    clothing to ship models etc.  The post-holder will primarily be
    involved with the conservation, restoration and preparation of
    small objects destined for display at the new Waterfront Museum
    Swansea, and conserving other items from the collections, as

    Candidates should hold a recognised conservation qualification
    with experience of dealing with industrial items.  Applicants
    with qualifications and experience in related fields, e.g. model
    making, will also be considered.

The ability to speak Welsh, or the willingness to learn, is
