Metals Conservation HLF-funded Internship
Royal Museums Greenwich

10 months training opportunity

UKP19,200 pro rata

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 further
develop the skills needed to maintain, conserve and restore these
objects.  Joining us for 10 months 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.
