The National Museum of the Royal Navy is the UK’s newest national Museum. We are recruiting experienced Shipwrights within the expanding Historic Ships Conservation team based in Portsmouth. The successful candidates will be part of a friendly, multidisciplinary team of museum professionals, conservators and maritime industry specialists committed to high quality professional work maintaining and conserving historic ships.

The majority of your time will be based on the Portsmouth ships – HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and HMS M.33 - with occasional travel to other ships posted at the Museum’s other locations in the UK, including Hartlepool and Belfast.

Overseen by the Foreman Shipwright, your work will ensure that the NMRN’s Historic Ships are conserved and able to operate effectively and safely. With these ships as public attractions, you will also engage with visitors about the important conservation work being undertaken.

This role provides an excellent opportunity to those involved in interesting and challenging heritage work within historic ships.
