This role will provide collections management support across a range of National Maritime Museum programmes, including the exhibition master plan and storage projects.
The Museum’s internationally significant archival, library, fine art and 3-D object collection numbers nearly three million items – from ship models to paintings, furniture to archival material. Your role will involve checking the location of objects, labelling and marking objects, record photography, investigating documentation queries, and assisting with collection management database development (Mimsy XG, Isis and Symphony), training and staff support.
The role involves working closely with colleagues across the Museum, particularly the Curatorial, Library, Archive, Conservation, Collections Management and Digital Media teams, to ensure that the Museum meets best practice in documentation standards and continues to develop and enhance access to its collections.
The successful candidate should have a demonstrable interest in collections management and be computer literate with experience of a collections management database. Candidates must have the confidence to liaise effectively with colleagues at all levels and the flexibility to work in various sites across the Museum. A degree or equivalent in a relevant subject is essential and some experience of working with collections would be an advantage.
