It's conserving a magnificent history that will be enjoyed by future generations

It's working with a shared and unique purpose, and it's caring for and presenting one of the world's largest art collections. This is what makes working for Royal Collection Trust so different.

The Royal Collection contains an unparalleled collection of nearly 8,000 paintings and 3,000 miniatures.

Our team of talented Paintings Conservators is responsible for all conservation activities relating to the paintings displayed within the Royal residences as well for loans from the Paintings collection.

Immersing yourself in this fascinating collection, you'll carry out vital painting conservation treatments, using the best methods and materials to restore and conserve works of art to the very highest standards.

You'll fully assess paintings in the collection, compiling condition reports and determining any conservation needed, as well as keeping our expanding database updated.

Liaising with colleagues across the department, you'll plan and co-ordinate conservation treatments ensuring they are scheduled and carried out in line with our busy programme of loans and exhibitions.

You'll also make sure paintings are stored, transported and displayed correctly.

What's more, you'll be proud to share and promote the work of the department, delivering talks and providing material for our website that aim to inspire and engage the broadest audience possible. 

You'll aim for perfection in all that you do. And knowing that you're helping to preserve a collection that will be enjoyed by future generations will be your biggest reward.

With a post-graduate qualification in Paintings Conservation, along with significant practical experience, ideally within a museum or heritage environment, you'll be able to hit the ground running.

Your organised and methodical approach to work will be vital, and you'll be able to prioritise in order to meet multiple deadlines for exhibitions.

Perceptive with great problem solving skills, we can rely on you to use your initiative, assess situations and make decisions when needed.  

You're an excellent communicator, and will enjoy working alongside and engaging with people at all levels.  

A good command of relevant IT programmes will be important too.

Above all, you're driven to maintain the very highest standards of care in all that you do.

This is your opportunity to take your skills to the next level and deliver the exceptional.
