Summary
We want everyone to discover and be inspired by the collections and places we look after, to be able to explore their history and to share our passion for curatorship and conservation.

Amongst a million objects in our care we hold some 5000 works of sculpture ranging in date from the ancient to the contemporary, associated with over 200 major historic houses. Sculptures form a key part of collections, assembled by private individuals and families, reflecting their tastes and histories. The collections are exceptionally strong in certain areas, notably British sculpture of the 18th and 19th centuries and Italian 19th-century sculpture. Highlights include masterpieces such as those of Rysbrack and Flaxman and exceptional groupings such as garden sculptures in lead. As a whole it is one of the more important collections of sculpture in the United Kingdom which has yet to be fully explored, understood and documented.
Our Sculpture Research and Cataloguing Project aims to research, catalogue and publish a new level of authoritative information.

Please note this role is a fixed term project-funded position.

What it's like to work here
Our London office, beautifully situated overlooking green spaces and just a short walk from Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace, is one of the National Trusts busiest offices. Covering 5 floors, each floor houses different teams, with one floor dedicated to the London & South East Consultancy team & London Creative team, though this will be your base, you will be spending time with all other teams too, and indeed have the opportunity to visit other hub offices across the region, too. The office provides working space for a wide variety of roles, and is supported by lots of meeting rooms, hot desks and can be supported by catering too. With the organisation spread out across the region, it ensures in the office no two days are the same – really no two days are the same.

What you'll be doing
This centrally-based role is dedicated to enhancing the Trust’s sculpture collections catalogue, to improve our knowledge of the sculpture collection as a whole through cataloguing, using the Trust’s collections management system, integrating with the work of the Sculpture Research Curator and inputting the results of research. It will steadily improve the quality and authority of our online records for our property visitors and for a worldwide audience on the web.

Reporting to the Head of Collections Management, as Collections Cataloguer you will work closely with a Sculpture Research Curator for the project, and also with the Curator and Assistant Curator of Pictures & Sculpture, other Curators, specialists, property colleagues and external partners.

This is an excellent opportunity for a sculpture specialist with experience of sculpture cataloguing in a museum, gallery or auction house.

Who we're looking for
You will have a degree in art history or similar, interest in the Trust’s historic properties and collections, knowledge of sculpture and experience in sculpture cataloguing in a museum, gallery or auction house. You will be competent in the use of collections management or cataloguing systems and rigorous in your attention to detail. You will be able to write clearly and succinctly in an accessible style.

Most importantly you will be enthusiastic about the contribution you can make to this exciting cataloguing and research project, which aims to raise the profile of the Trust’s sculpture collections for the enjoyment and benefit of specialist and general audiences worldwide.
