KSH&Co Ltd is one of the UK's leading independent paintings
conservation practices currently comprising 3 experienced paintings
conservators, a frame technician and an office manager.  Established
in 2004, and operating from a fully equipped and custom built 2,500
square foot studio base on the Houghton Hall estate (home of the
Marquess of Cholmondeley), we have one of the largest studio spaces
in the private sector.  Working on paintings from the 14th century
to the present day, our clients come from all over the UK and
worldwide. We are an extremely busy practice working on a wide
variety of projects at any one time, covering the treatment of
complex cleaning and cosmetic restoration, complex structural
treatments (canvas and panel), in-depth study and research, very
large monumental paintings, and large site-work projects.

KSH&Co Ltd is offering a full time internship based at our Norfolk
studios. The successful applicant will be a paintings conservator
with between 0-12 months post qualification experience who will work
alongside, and who will be supervised and taught by our core team.
The internship is designed to allow concentration on practical
studio work with opportunities for research work depending on
current projects (of which there are usually several in progress).
This position presents an unrivalled opportunity to gain an
intensive and broad range of in depth practical experience and
related study.

The internship, which will be funded by on going studio projects,
will be offered from January 2015 and will be tenable for six
months.  Thereafter the intern may be invited to extend the
internship for up to a further year. Applicants must be recent
graduates from a recognised training programme and should hold a
Bachelor or Masters Degree, or equivalent Diploma, in easel
paintings conservation.  Applicants must also be fluent in English
(written and spoken) to native or bi-lingual standard; this is
essential.  A collaborative, supportive and flexible team working
style will also be essential, and the ability to deal with people at
all levels and in a professional manner will be critical.  A high
degree of IT literacy, preferably including the use of software for
data acquisition and analysis and image processing, is required.

The successful candidate will be organised, responsible,
enthusiastic must have the potential to work to very high standards
under fixed deadlines.

KSH&Co Ltd welcomes diversity and is committed to equality of
opportunity. However we have a responsibility to ensure that
candidates comply with UK Border and Immigration legislation and
