CONSERVATOR

Salary £24,000-28,000 per annum (full time, permanent)

Historic Dockyard Chatham are looking to recruit a Conservator who can undertake conservation treatment, as well as manage preventative conservation for Trust’s extensive collections spanning over 400-years of maritime history.

It is an exciting time to join the Collections Team, as we work to deliver a new programme of permanent galleries and exhibitions, as well as improve our collections stores.  As a core member of the Collections Team, the Conservator will manage the Trust’s collections stores, prepare objects for display, and advise on display conditions.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in a brand-new conservation laboratory, as well as collaborate with others across the organisation, including staff and volunteers, and with the historic vessels.

The Trust’s collections are varied and include manuscripts, printed books, photographs, models, textiles, archaeology, ordnance, boats, tools, art, vehicles, and ships.   The Conservator will have a good understanding of museum conservation and will need to be able to work with objects with varied materials.  In addition, the Conservator will have the ability to work well under pressure to meet tight project deadlines.
