Digitisation projects are a key part of The National Archives'
business, access and preservation strategies.  They involve multiple
departments working interdependently to bring a project together,
and allow us to build valuable partnerships with external clients
and companies.  The role has an impact on the ability of the
organisation to deliver large scale digitization projects many of
which have a strong commercial benefit.  Maintaining the balance
between the preservation needs of the collection and the commercial
aspects of the project is crucial.  The Project Conservator plays a
vital part in facilitating the smooth running of these projects to
ensure timely delivery while upholding the professional reputation
of The National Archives.

The Project Conservator ensures that all information on the document

meet strict targets and deadlines so an ability to work under
pressure is vital.

The role requires a recognised professional qualification in
