Project Conservators x 2 - Fixed Term Appointment for 6 months with possibility 
of extension

About us:
Imagine a world without archives: without records, we could not trace our 
ancestry, hold government and institutions to account or carry out pioneering 
academic research. Archives matter and at The National Archives we are always 
seeking new ways to broaden, enable and enhance access to the 11 million 
records we hold in our collections and to advance their preservation. One such 
way through which we achieve this is the mass digitisation of our collections 
in conjunction with commercial partners in genealogy and academic publishing.

About the role:
Digitisation projects are a key part of The National Archives' business, access 
and preservation strategies. They involve multiple departments working 
interdependently to bring a project together, and allow us to build valuable 
partnerships with external clients and companies.
Working as a Project Conservator within the Collection Care Department, you 
will join a dedicated team of conservators responsible for assessing and 
preparing records for digitisation.
The role has direct impact on the ability of the organisation to deliver large 
scale digitisation projects, many of which have strong commercial benefits. 
Maintaining the balance between preservation needs of the collection and 
commercial aspects of the project is crucial. You will play a vital part in 
facilitating the smooth running of these projects, ensuring timely delivery, 
while upholding the professional reputation of TNA.

About you:
You will have a keen eye for detail and have an ability to work both 
individually and as part of a team. You should have a good understanding of 
basic conservation processes and knowledge of current conservation practice and 
ethical standards. You will have strong organisational skills with the ability 
to plan and prioritise work while under pressure in order to meet strict 
deadlines and targets. With the need for cross-departmental working, you will 
also have strong verbal and written communication skills.

Join us here in beautiful Kew near Richmond, just 10 minutes' walk from the 
Overground and Underground stations, and help create a modern national archive 
that makes our history even more accessible. In return, you'll receive a great 
Civil Service benefits package that includes flexible working, pension, 
childcare vouchers, access to sports facilities and opportunities for training 
and development.

CLOSING DATE 15TH April at midnight
