    The NTS is Scotland's leading conservation charity. Managing an
    extensive portfolio of built heritage sites, from castles and
    country houses to cottages and modern museum facilities, the
    Trust today cares for one of the largest, most varied and
    important collections of material culture in Scotland.  The
    Edinburgh and East Group covers properties in Angus, Fife,
    Edinburgh and the Lothians.

    Our conservators are key players in linking the Trust's
    Conservation Principles with its operations at property level.
    As ambassadors for best practice in Collections Conservation,
    NTS Conservators inspire and motivate property staff and
    volunteers to understand and appreciate the ethos of Collections
    Conservation and Care, and help equip them to deliver it, as
    well as ultimately enhance visitor understanding and enjoyment
    of the Trust's interiors and collections.  The Collections
    Conservation Service also brings invaluable expertise to
    multi-disciplinary project teams where Collections Conservation
    may be an overt objective, or where the impact may be less
    direct.  More widely, the Trust ensures its approach to the
    conservation and care of its collections is in line with current
    thinking and practice through the Conservators' professional
    standards and networks.

    You will have a recognised qualification in remedial or
    preventive conservation, and experience in preferably both
    museum and historic interior environments, as well as experience
    of project planning and delivery. You must be an enthusiastic
    and energetic self-starter with outstanding inter-personal and
    organisational skills and an ability to co-ordinate multiple
    priorities. You will also need to have sound IT skills; the
    possession of a driving licence is preferable.

    The NTS supports PACR and the successful candidate should either
    be an accredited Conservator or be working towards accredited
    status.

    Please email joinus<-a t->nts< . >org< . >uk or call +44 131 243 9417 for an
    application pack.

    Closing date 2 June 2008.

Based in Alloway, Ayrshire
Fixed Term Contract - 18 Months

    NTS is Scotland's leading conservation charity. Managing an
    extensive portfolio of built heritage sites, from castles and
    country houses to cottages and modern museum facilities, the
    Trust today cares for one of the largest, most varied and
    important collections of material culture in Scotland.

    The Trust is leading the redevelopment of Burns National
    Heritage Park to improve the care and conservation of the
    world's most important museum collection relating to Burns, and
    to make the poet's birthplace a source of inspiration for every
    visitor. The new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum--being built as
    part of the project to house the collection--is scheduled to
    open to the public in 2010.

    The Trust seeks to appoint a Project Conservator to lead on the
    delivery of the decant, storage and installation of the Robert
    Burns Birthplace Museum Collection in accordance with NTS
    Conservation Principles and to act as the primary contact and
    support for collections conservation  aspects for the wider
    project team.

    You will have a recognised qualification in remedial or
    preventive conservation, and experience in preferably both
    museum and historic interior environments, as well as experience
    of project planning and delivery. You must be an enthusiastic
    and energetic self-starter with outstanding inter-personal and
    organisational skills and an ability to co-ordinate multiple
    priorities. You will also need to have sound IT skills; the
