We want everyone to discover and be inspired by our collections and the places we look after; to have access to explore their history; to understand their value, and therefore share our passion for curatorship and conservation.

You’ll ensure that the team are delivering exceptional service, every time for everyone whilst also making sure all National Trust procedures are being followed to help manage any risks to our visitors, staff and volunteers.

Who we're looking for
To be successful in this role, you’ll need to;
• Have a good working knowledge and experience of using CMS systems
• Have a good understanding of preventative conservation, as well as an awareness of Museum Accreditation standards
• Have some experience of working with volunteers
• Have great communication, IT and organisational skills
• Be able to work well in a team
• Have good project management skills
• Have great attention to detail with good hand-eye co-ordination
• Have a degree in a relevant field or experience in historic properties
