English Heritage is the nation's lead body for the conservation of

Conservator and an Environmental Management Intern to join our
Museums and Collections Division at Savile Row, London.

Senior Collections Conservator

You will be working in the Collections Conservation Team who aim to
raise the standard of collections conservation and collections
management throughout English Heritage through identifying key
issues and delivering realistic solutions.

You will be responsible for developing effective relationships with
English Heritage teams involved with historic houses and
collections.  This will involve organising and implementing the
regional projects programme, national training programme and
providing strategic advice on major historic house projects.

It is essential that you have a recognised conservation
qualification with at least 5 years' post-qualification practical
and preventive conservation experience.  You will be an
enthusiastic, well-motivated team worker able to deliver under
pressure.  You must also be prepared to spend nights away from home
and hold a current clean driver's licence.

In return, you will enjoy considerable responsibility and the
opportunity to gain professional development plus experience of
working in the historic house context.  Your starting salary will
depend upon qualification and experience, and benefits include a
non-contributory pension, and free entry to all our sites.

This is an opportunity to assist in managing the environment as it
affects historic artefacts, both in English Heritage's own

and the buildings themselves.

The intern will assist the Senior Conservation Scientist in:
planning and carrying out programmes of environmental monitoring,
principally air temperature and relative humidity; downloading and
analysing data; maintaining equipment; making recommendations for
environmental management.

Training will be provided to enable the intern to develop a thorough
understanding of the techniques of environmental monitoring and
translating the results into concrete environmental management

The successful applicant will have graduated in the past two years
with a recognised qualification in either conservation, one of the
physical sciences or computing, but above all should be interested
in applying their knowledge to the conservation of historic
collections and buildings.

The post will involve travel throughout England, and sometimes
staying overnight.
