Castle Coole and Florence Court. The work includes training property
staff in housekeeping and overseeing technical standards in
preventive conservation and care of collections, 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. PACR status is highly desirable. You will have at
least three years' practical experience of working as a Conservator.
Communication, team working, organisational, planning and IT skills
