Position at the National Trust

From: Robert Allen <robert.allen>
Date: Monday, September 11, 2006
Deputy Textile Conservation Advisor
The National Trust
UKP25,043 - UKP28,883 pa

The National Trust is Europe's leading conservation charity and its
textile collections are of outstanding importance. The Textile
Conservation Studio is housed in refurbished vernacular buildings on
the Blickling estate, 12 miles north of the vibrant city of Norwich.

You will be an advocate for the promotion and implementation of
textile conservation throughout the National Trust which will
include delivery of specific training events and management of the
Levy Textile Conservation Intern. As a practitioner you will work
closely with the Textile Conservation Advisor/Studio Manager and the
studio team to ensure the highest standards are maintained through
all stages of service delivery. You will work across the board in
all aspects of preventive and remedial conservation, influencing and
informing both property and conservation staff. Your management
skills will enable you to understand, and work creatively with, the
constraints on resources that exist within the NT as a charity.

You will have a relevant degree (or equivalent) and a recognised
textile conservation qualification, plus five years' post training
experience. You should be ICON-accredited or be actively working
towards UK PACR scheme accreditation. You will have worked in a
multi-disciplinary team and have excellent communication skills, as
well as first class organisational ability with proficient IT
skills. A driving licence is essential as you will be required to
travel widely to fulfil this role.
