Position at the Hampton Court Palace

From: Jo Wilson <jo.wilson<-at->
Date: Friday, September 13, 2013
Collections Management Officer
Hampton Court Palace

Temporary contract - maternity cover
6 months with possible extension
Full time

Historic Royal Palaces displays, stores and cares for thousands of
historic objects, many of them in their original royal setting.
Keeping track of the collections and their information is an
essential role for our conservation department. This year we are
carrying out a palaces-wide project to catalogue our entire
collection on our Collections Management System and developing an
off-site collection store.

Under our newly-appointed Collections Management Registrar you will
supervise a palaces-wide CMS-based inventory check of our
collections and assist with our application to renew ACE
accreditation. You will also support Collections Management
operations pertaining to acquisitions, loans, object moves,
inventory checks and collection database updates.

With your expertise gained in a museum or related area, you will be
familiar with current best practice in collections management.
Joining us is a fantastic way to expand your experience, helping us
care for our collections for all our visitors now and in the future.

Based at Hampton Court Palace there will be a requirement to travel
to our other palaces on occasion.

Historic Royal Palaces is a registered charity (No 1068852) and an
equal opportunities employer. Applications are welcome from all
candidates regardless of sex, racial, ethnic or national origin,
disability, age, sexuality or responsibilities for dependents. We
value a diverse workforce and celebrate our differences.

Pay Range: UKP25,000 circa
