Job Description:
The British Museum is seeking to recruit a Conservator. This role is for an early career conservator for a 12-week full time contract in the Organic Artefacts Conservation section. The post aims to enable a recent conservation graduate to develop their skills in organic artefact conservation and to gain experience working in a museum context. The role requires the post holder to have specialist knowledge and experience in the area of organic materials conservation. Upcoming projects include work on Arctic and Pacific collections and a particular interest in indigenous world cultures materials would be seen as beneficial.

The post-holder will contribute to the preparation of objects for loan, exhibition and permanent display, as well as supporting dedicated projects on collections in store. This role will also involve delivering an increasingly diverse public programme and supporting the department with the implementation of the Collection Care strategy.

The successful candidate will possess a recognised professional conservation qualification to degree level, or equivalent. The post is open to those with no more than 2 years post training experience.

We are seeking a highly organised individual, who can balance diverse workloads and complete projects to agreed deadlines and budgets. You will liaise with a variety of stakeholders and will be confident in presenting work publicly. It is essential to pass a colour vision test for this role.
