Position at the National Trust

From: Nigel Seeley <lhbnjs>
Date: Thursday, January 13, 2000
Textile Conservator position
National Trust's Blickling Textile Conservation Studio
Norfolk, England

The National Trust is Europe's leading conservation charity, and its
textile collections, housed in some two hundred properties open to
the public, are of outstanding importance.  The Studio is run as an
enterprise, and its staff carry out conservation work on textiles
belonging to the National Trust and other clients, and training is
also offered to young conservators.  Its main purpose, as part of
the National Trust's Historic Buildings Department, is to provide
textile conservation and advice to properties within the fifteen
regions of the National Trust in England, Wales and Northern
Ireland.  The Studio is located at Blickling Hall, one of the great
Jacobean country houses of England, built in 1619 to replace an
earlier house which was probably the birthplace of Anne Boleyn,
second wife of King Henry VIII.  Further information about the
National Trust and its properties can be found at its web site:

A permanent post is being offered and the successful applicant will
join a team of seven staff who work on a wide range of objects, from
state beds and tapestry to costume.  This is an exciting time for
the Trust's Studio, with a number of important projects being
undertaken as well as moving to new and improved premises on the
Blickling Estate.

The starting salary is UKP14,670 - UKP19,770 p/a, depending upon
skills and experience. Applicants should have a recognised textile
conservation qualification or have completed an apprenticeship, and
must be entitled to take up employment in the EC.  They must also be
prepared to work away on site and be in possession of a current
driving licence.   The National Trust is committed to equal
opportunities.  For an informal discussion about the post you are
welcome to telephone Ksynia Marko on +44 0-1263-738043.

The closing date for applications is Monday 28 February, with
interviews at the earliest during the week of 20 March.  For further
details and an application form please send an A4 self-addressed
envelope quoting Ref: TC to
