Our team of talented Paintings Conservators are responsible for all conservation activities relating to the paintings displayed within the Royal residences as well for loans from the Paintings collection.

In addition, your time management skills will be vital in order to prioritise multiple, and often conflicting deadlines.

Organised yet flexible in approach, you'll be able to scope out and plan long term work whilst also adapting to align with wider, short-term needs.

Perceptive with great problem solving skills, we can rely on you to take initiative, assess situations, and make decisions when needed.

You're an excellent communicator, and will enjoy working alongside and engaging with people at all levels across our varied and talented team.

A good command of relevant IT programmes will be important too.

Above all, you're driven to maintain the very highest standards of care in all that you do.

This is your opportunity to further develop your practical skills and knowledge of art history to deliver the exceptional.
