This autumn sees the start of a large scale building maintenance
project at Audley End House.  Working as part of the Collections
Conservation team, you will work closely with the Project
Conservator to assist with the care and conservation of the
collections and interiors at Audley End House during the project.

You will assist with the movement of the collections to temporary
storage and work closely with contractors to ensure that the
decorative interiors of the building are fully protected during the
project.  Following the completion of the building works you will
assist with the reinstallation of collections and work with the
project team to ensure that all display rooms are ready for the
re-opening of the house in April 2015.

You will need to have previous experience of undertaking
conservation housekeeping in a historic environment and to have
completed housekeeping and environmental training (preferably
English Heritage or National Trust short courses).  If you have the
relevant experience, plus you are flexible, have excellent people
and communication skills, great manual dexterity, confidence working
at height and organisational skills which are second to none then
this could be the job for you
