Salary: £23897
Location: Edinburgh
Closing date: Friday 19 July 2019


This role forms part of the project team that will work on a rapid review and rationalisation of material collections stored at a commercial storage facility in Edinburgh. The project will reduce the quantity of material held in the store through a programme of provenance research, significance review and ethical disposal. The role will provide support to the Project Manager and involves a combination of archival research to determine collections provenance, with the physical management of those objects to prepare them for disposal or repatriation. This role requires someone with experience in museum collections management and meticulous attention to detail. The post-holder will demonstrate confidence and tact in liaising with a wide range of stakeholders including curators, registrar, conservators, property staff and external contractors. Many of the collections held at the store are not part of NTS? permanent collections and were not collected with the intention of formally accessioning them into the collection, but some are significant to NTS, and some may be loans. The post-holder will apply a risk management methodology to ensure that due diligence has been satisfied before any final decisions are taken about the completion of any disposal.
