Job Description:
National Museums Scotland is one of the leading museum groups in Europe. With one of the largest and most diverse collections in the world, we are responsible for the acquisition, preservation and display of a substantial part of Scotland’s cultural, historic and national heritage.

Millions of local and international visitors enjoy our four museums each year, and we also introduce our collections to a much wider audience than can physically visit our museums through, touring exhibitions, loans, community engagement, digital programmes and research.

Over the last decade, we have invested over £120 million in our sites and have more than doubled our visitor numbers, with over 3 million people now visiting our four museums. Alongside this, we have continued to transform how we communicate and engage with our audiences. 2019 has seen the completion of our Masterplan for the National Museum of Scotland with the opening of three new galleries dedicated to Ancient Egypt, East Asia and the Art of Ceramics.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Project Assistant Artefact Conservator to join our busy and dynamic conservation team in the Collection Centre (Granton) for six-months to support the conservation, restoration and mounting of a rare 17th Century ceramic Tile Panel from Isfahan prior to display in forthcoming exhibitions. This conservation project is being made possible with Art Fund support.
