Castle, Erddig and Llanerchaeron. The work includes training
property staff in housekeeping and overseeing technical standards in
preventive conservation and care of collections.   You will also be
responsible for identifying survey needs, maintaining conservation
records, advising on remedial conservation priorities and the
allocation of resources, and enabling sustainable access to historic
buildings and collections.

You must have a good first degree and/or a recognised conservation
qualification, plus at least three years practical experience of
working as a conservator.    PACR is highly desirable.
Communication, team working, organisational, planning and IT skills
