Preventive Conservation Adviser - Skills and Projects
The National Trust
London SW1

UKP41,000 - UKP44,000 per annum plus benefits
Ref: IRC720

A preventive conservation specialist, you'll be our authority on
training and skills development for our 550 house staff, and on
safeguarding interiors and collections during building projects and
emergency salvage. We want you to share your expertise with
colleagues across the organisation, with the Trust's supporters and
with your peers in museums and galleries. As one of our national
specialists, you'll have a good understanding of our aims and
objectives and a desire to enthuse our people about conservation.
You'll also have the knowledge to identify the best methods for
developing conservation skills, whether that's through delivering
training programmes, supporting apprenticeships and internships,
planning projects or working with external partners.

Adding an important new dimension to our conservation work, you'll
encourage creative ways of bringing collections and historic
interiors to life, helping everyone enjoy the beauty and interest
which works of art, social history collections and decorative
interiors provide.

This role is based with the national specialist team in London SW1
but, to facilitate travel and access to our properties, we can be
flexible about office location or home-working. We are aware of the
scope of this role and depth of expertise required, so we're open to
applications for part-time working/job share between two
appropriately qualified and experienced conservators. You will be
expected to travel for three days per week on average and overnight
stays may also be required. We will pay you a mileage allowance or
offer a lease car, subject to total annual mileage.
