Dorset Archives Service

The Dorset Parish Records Preservation Project is operated by the
Dorset Archives Services with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund
and the Friends of Dorset Archives. The Project requires two full
time Interns to assist with the Project conservation programme. The
programme consists of assessment and remedial treatment for paper
and parchment manuscript documents and early limp vellum stationery

The Internships include technical training and professional
development and the Interns will match their progress against the
nationally recognised PACR accreditation standards. Dorset Archives
Service has one of the best-equipped and modern conservation
facilities of its kind in the UK. The Interns will join the
Conservation Unit team, which is part of the Preservation Services
Division at the Dorset Record Office.

Candidates should have some formal training and recognised
qualification in paper, book or archive conservation, such as a
first degree or post-graduate degree. Some practical experience of
working in a conservation practice and/or an archive will be
advantageous. The successful applicants will have to work well in a
team, be confident and enthusiastic and have a strong desire to
pursue a career as a professional conservator.

The salary for these posts is UKP 12,192 - 12,444 (Local Government
Scale 3 s.c.p. 14-15). If you would like to receive an application
