Positions at National Maritime Museum

From: Birthe Christensen <bchristensen<-at->
Date: Tuesday, December 1, 2009
Head of Paper Conservation
Head of Object Conservation
National Maritime Museum

It's an exciting time to join the National Maritime Museum. Not
least because we're driving through a range of high-profile
programmes including the new Sammy Ofer Wing, scheduled to open in
2012, but also because you will enjoy great autonomy. So you will
definitely need a focused strategic vision, as well as the ability
to lead teams and influence thinking at all levels.

Head of Paper Conservation
UKP30,000 - UKP37,000

    With a busy programme of exhibitions planned, we need you to
    take responsibility for looking after our extensive paper-based
    collections (close to three million items). You'll also work
    with our storage management team to develop a new archive store.
    Strong people and project management skills are important, along
    with proven experience in paper conservation.

Head of Object Conservation
UKP30,000 - UKP37,000

    You'll be responsible for looking after our world-renowned 3-D
    object collections--including, scientific instruments, ship
    models, flags, furniture, sculptures,  and costumes. A
    background in conservation management and a specialist knowledge
    of at least one of the above areas are both essential, plus
    experience of managing the handling of hazardous materials. A
    good understanding of risk management is also important.
