From: Carolyn Lamb <carolynpaintingconservator<-at->
Date: Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Collections Officer (Object Conservator)
Collections Officer (Paper Conservator) Post 028642
Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives

Collections Officer (Object Conservator)
Post 028664

    Fixed term appointment: until 31 March 2015

    Salary: Bristol Grade 10:  UKP25,472 - UKP28,636

    Based at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Queens' Road, Bristol
    BS8 1RL

    The collections are divided into nine curatorial sections
    (Public History, Industrial and Maritime History, World
    Cultures, Archaeology, Geology, Biology, Fine Art, Applied Art
    and Eastern Art).  In addition to these collections (which are
    the largest in the South West and number over 1.75 million
    items) the service has just taken on responsibility for the
    collections formerly of the British Empire and Commonwealth
    Museum and it is likely that conservation work on this
    collection may be a priority.  This collection comprises
    approximately 10,000 objects dating from about 1900 to 2000, and
    covering a wide range of materials including wood, pottery,
    feather, basketry, animal hide and hair, silk, cotton, metals
    and plastics

    The successful candidate will be expected to have a recognised
    conservation qualification or equivalent, considerable existing
    museum conservation experience and expertise along with drive
    and ambition to promote their subject.  Income generation
    through taking on external work through the museum may also be
    required.

Collections Officer (Paper Conservator)
Post 028642

    Fixed term appointment: 1 August, 2012 - 31 July, 2013

    Salary: Bristol Grade 10:  UKP25,472 - UKP28,636

    Based at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Queens' Road, Bristol
    BS8 1RL

    The Museum and Art Gallery collections are divided into nine
    curatorial sections (Public History, Industrial and Maritime
    History, World Cultures, Archaeology, Geology, Biology, Fine
    Art, Applied Art and Eastern Art).  In addition to these
    collections the service has just taken on responsibility for the
    collections formerly of the British Empire and Commonwealth
    Museum.  There are paper items across the majority of the
    collections including some 16,000 works on paper in the Fine Art
    collection. Members of the conservation department are involved
    in delivering the lively exhibition programme across several
    museum sites.

    The successful candidate will be expected to have a recognised
    conservation qualification or equivalent, considerable existing
    museum conservation experience and expertise along with drive
    and ambition to promote their subject. The museum offers
    conservation services to external clients and this is an
    important element of the role. You will be required to assess
    and complete external work to agreed estimates.
