Job Description:
It's knowing that you might uncover a unique snapshot of history

It’s working as one team to deliver impressive projects. And it’s the satisfaction of presenting, and promoting, one of the world’s greatest and most diverse art collections. This is what makes working for Royal Collection Trust so different.

In terms of both quality and diversity, our collection of photographs is breath-taking, with works dating from the 1840s to the present day.

It's a 'living' collection, yet there are fascinating stories here that have lain untold for decades. Joining the team at the heart of uncovering these, you'll help to research and bring them alive – not just through inspiring exhibitions but also catalogues, presentations and displays.

Developing your own expertise, as well as the teams' knowledge, you'll also share your discoveries with a wider audience through presentation and interpretation.

At the same time, you'll make sure the photograph collection has proper custodial control, and will edit and update existing online records, ensuring they are accessible and easy to navigate.

Drawing on expertise from teams across Royal Collection Trust, collaboration will be part of your daily routine and will be key to your success.

But, above all, your passion for engaging people with history will help to preserve the photographic heritage of this unique collection.
Required Skills:
With a relevant degree and a clear interest in and knowledge of art history and photography, particularly of 19th century works, you’ll be an asset to our team.

You'll have experience cataloguing photographs, and a working knowledge of relevant cataloguing practices and the challenges of working with a historic collection.

With an eye for detail and good command of relevant IT programs (including cultural heritage cataloguing systems), you'll be confident presenting works through online platforms.

Familiar with early photographic technology, you also have an excellent understanding of the preservation and conservation issues that relate to photographic prints and negatives.

Being methodical with strong administration skills, you'll be able to plan and deliver large scale projects, self-motivated, you'll also be comfortable working independently to achieve consistently high standards.

As an excellent communicator with a proactive approach, you'll enjoy collaborating with team members and colleagues who are specialists in their own field.

And, perhaps above all, you’re eager to immerse yourself in the unique learning opportunities that the collection presents.
