We require an experienced paper conservator with an interest in

A tertiary qualification in conservation with a specialisation in

Membership of the AICCM (Australian Institute for Conservation of
Cultural Material) is expected for this role.

An interest in helping us to grow the size and scale of our paper
conservation services, including development of our paper
conservation team, would be beneficial.

to $71,904 plus 9% superannuation. Australian citizenship or
residency is preferred, but we will assist with obtaining a work

International Conservation Services is Australia's largest private

textiles, paper, sculpture, archaeological artefacts and wall
finishes in buildings.  We also provide a range of consulting
