The Trust employs staff in all of the specialist areas covered by the Horniman: anthropology, musical instruments, natural history, the aquarium, gardens, education, conservation, documentation, collections management and library. In addition, we have staff providing other functions including Marketing, Development, IT, HR, Finance, Facilities, Cleaning and Security and most importantly the service provided directly to the public by our Visitor Assistants.
The Trust has approximately 91 full time equivalent posts and the post-holders are located either in the main Museum or our Study Collections Centre, sited in Greenwich. In addition to these posts we regularly offer short term contracts where we have been successful in obtaining funding for specific projects.
We seek an enthusiastic and experienced Conservator to assist with the conservation and preparation of objects from the Anthropology collection as part of the Collections People Stories project. The post will be based mainly at the Horniman Study Collections Centre at North Greenwich.
Applicants should have a relevant degree or equivalent qualification and a track record of post-qualification practical experience which encompasses the care, documentation and treatment of a wide-range of organic and inorganic objects in a museum environment. The ability to work to deadlines while maintaining high standards is essential, as is the flexibility to work as part of a team or in isolation.
This is fixed term post until 31 March 2015.
The closing date for completed application forms is 10am on 17 April 2014. Interviews will be held on 29 April 2014 at the Horniman Study Collections Centre in North Greenwich.
