We are hiring for a Fixed Term Conservator to work on the Fine Art & Paintings Collection at the Whitworth. Now with an award winning new building, with exemplary exhibition spaces, study spaces and collection stores, there could not be a better time to join. We need an open-minded, passionate conservator to work with our small but significant collection of oil and acrylic paintings.

We are looking for a dynamic, collaboratively minded conservator who is prepared to deal with a combination of historic oils and contemporary acrylics, with a flexible and innovative approach to problem-solving. The post will be expected to undertake a collections survey, improve storage systems and undertake a programme of stabilizing treatments.

As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the black and minority ethnic (BME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area. All appointments will be made on merit.
