JOB TITLE: Collections Care Assistant
HOURS: Part time, 25 hours per week
SALARY: £15,600 (Hourly rate £12.00)

Ditchley Park is one of the United Kingdom’s finest houses, having a rich history as an idyllic retreat for royalty and power since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Sir Winston Churchill famously used Ditchley as a secret base during the early years of World War II, meeting presidential envoy Harry Hopkins here in his efforts to win American support.

Ditchley Park is owned and managed by The Ditchley Foundation who work with people from across the world to help sustain peace, freedom and order. Ditchley’s approach aims to build new common ground, we believe that change is driven, and managed, by personal relationships, not reports or declarations. In this inspiring place, we enable spirited but respectful discussion across divisions of expertise, geography, generations and political opinion. We work constantly to get better at this, harnessing the power of tradition and innovation in equal measure. No one leaves Ditchley without thinking new things.

When not being used by The Ditchley Foundation, Ditchley Park hosts private events for selected institutions and companies.

Reporting to the House and Collections Care Manager, you will support the delivery of an effective and flexible house service, to enable the successful operation of the Foundation. The house is maintained to a high standard and, unusually for a house of its stature, is made available as a country house home for both events that support the causes of the Foundation, and some additional private functions. Event guests are invited to stay in bedrooms recently redesigned in an elegant country house style, containing both historic features and acquired antiques.

Undertaking the day-to-day cleaning and care of the house and its collection you’ll keep a keen eye on everything from the environmental conditions in a room, to signs of wear and tear. When the house is not in use for an event, you will support the House and Collections Care Manager with preventative conservation tasks, condition reporting and digital record management.
  Required Skills / Qualifications
• Good understanding of preventative conservation.
• Knowledge of collections management and care of historic property.
• Computer literate.
• Able to work from towers, ladders and scaffolds.
• Will perform basic tasks with minimum supervision, but able to organise own work to meet deadlines: involved in routine duties.
• To be professional and polite to all.
• To work as part of a team, supporting each other where necessary.
• To have a flexible approach to workload.
• Attention to detail, with an understanding and respect of antiques.
• Reliable, with good time management.
• Physically able to undertake reasonable manual labour.
