Job Description:
Do you have a passion for conserving, caring for and improving access to museum collections?

This is an exciting time to join our Museum Service as major developments of our museums are changing the cultural landscape of Colchester and Ipswich.

We are seeking an experienced Conservator with a passion for diverse museum collections and heritage venues. Our nationally significant collections chart both the human and natural histories of Colchester. From Stone Age artefacts to contemporary costume, fossils to spirit specimens, these collections inspire and inform our visitors. You will play an active role with these collections from acquisition and exhibition to rationalisation and digital access.

The role offers an exciting opportunity for those interested in new challenges with a creative approach, organising diverse collections, developing collection care strategies and engaging new audiences with stored collections. In this role, you will be responsible for all aspects of collections care at our four venues: Colchester Castle, the Natural History Museum, Hollytree’s Museum and our Resource Centre.
Required Skills:
We welcome applicants who can demonstrate their experience and passion for the care of collections and recognise the importance of museum collections to local communities. With an eye for detail and precision you’ll be confident in managing a complex workload across multiple sites. An excellent team player and communicator, you’ll enjoy working with, and supporting, dynamic colleagues in our busy and aspirational museum service. Above all you’ll understand the challenges of conserving broad collections and safeguarding their preservation for future audiences.
