Metals Conservation Internship
Royal Museums Greenwich


12 months training opportunity

The National Maritime Museum is home to some of the nation's most
precious historic metal objects. The Museum's collections are
world-renowned, comprising more than two million items relating to
seafaring, navigation, astronomy and time measurement.  We are now
seeking an ambitious and committed individual to develop the skills
needed to maintain, conserve and restore these objects.

Joining us for one year in a role funded by the Heritage Lottery
Fund, you will undergo a comprehensive training programme under the
guidance of our Senior Specialist. This will include learning and
developing the skills of a metals conservator, learning to conduct
assessments and produce condition reports.  A strong communicator
with a helpful and friendly approach, you should bring proven
metalworking skills and familiarity with a wide range of small
tools. Experience of working with historic metals would be welcomed,
though it is not essential. What's important is that you are keen to
build your career in conservation within a heritage environment.
