Dorset Parish Records
Preservation Project

Contract to 31 December 2002

(UKP 13,800 -14,823, pay award pending)

The Dorset Parish Records Preservation Project is operated by the
Dorset Archives Service with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund
and the Friends of Dorset Archives. The Project requires a full-time
Assistant Conservator 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 bindings.

The post is likely to appeal to a recently trained or graduated
conservator seeking a period of practical experience as an intern.
The post will include technical training and professional
development and the post-holder will be assisted to match 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 Assistant
Conservator 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 a recognised
qualification in paper, book or archive conservation, such as a
diploma, 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.
