From: Nigel Seeley <lhbnjs>
Date: Tuesday, October 27, 1998
Four conservators (part-time) --one each for the National Trust's
Devon, East Midlands, Yorkshire and North West Regions.

Four trained and experienced Conservators specialising in preventive
conservation are required to play important and challenging roles in
the preservation of historic houses and their collections for public

The Conservators will each be responsible for the preventive
conservation and housekeeping standards at a variety of properties,
and will be the first line of conservation support for their
respective Regions. The work is wide-ranging and will include
environmental monitoring, storage and protection of contents during
building works, supervision of in-situ conservation work, project
management, preparation of conservation budgets, planning and
commissioning remedial treatments.

Education to graduate level, a professional qualification in
conservation, and 3-5 years work experience are essential, but equal
emphasis is placed on organisational skills, the ability to promote
the interests of conservation, and to motivate, teach and develop
staff at all levels. Starting salaries: Pounds Sterling 16,770 per
annum (pro rata).

The posts in the Devon and Yorkshire Regions are each four days per
week, in the North West Region three days per week, and in the East
Midlands Region (sharing an existing post) also for three days per
week. Information about the National Trust and its properties can be
