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

Its 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.

In terms of both quality and diversity, our collection of decorative arts is breath-taking, featuring items that are unique and historically significant.

Joining a team of talented conservation and restoration specialists, you'll care for and restore picture frames to the highest standard.

Based at our on-site workshop, you'll carry out conservation treatments, employing a range of techniques. You'll carefully balance multiple projects, ensuring that the collection can continue to be appreciated by future generations.

Everyday your expertise will be relied upon. You'll evaluate the condition of picture frames and make recommendations for treatments. You'll also oversee the work of external contractors, providing advice and guidance to ensure exceptional standards of collections care and conservation at all times.

You'll also be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of specialist tools, and equipment, ensuring H&S requirements are consistently met.

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 millions will inspire you every day.

With a relevant degree in conservation, and significant experience in the conservation and restoration of giltwood, you're the expert we're looking for.

As a specialist in the treatment of picture frames, you have experience with traditional gilding materials and techniques, and you're able to evaluate items and propose conservation treatments that are practical and in line with time and budgetary requirements.

In addition, your organisation and time management skills will be vital in order to prioritise multiple, and often conflicting deadlines.  

You're an excellent communicator, and will enjoy working alongside and engaging with people at all levels, both internal and external, including specialists in their own field.

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

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.
