Senior Conservation Project Manager

Employer: Victoria & Albert Museum
Job location: London
The V&A is looking for a Senior Conservation Project Manager to join its vibrant Conservation department on an 18-month fixed term contract (salary: £35,039 per annum).

The V&A is the world's leading museum of art, design and performance, and the custodian of an extraordinary and extensive collection spanning decorative and applied arts. Working with and for our visitors, we are changing how our extensive Collections are cared for, seen, understood and enjoyed. The mission of the Collections Care and Access division is to manage, preserve, and provide access to the V&A's collection in both physical and digital format, working across multiple V&A sites, at South Kensington, Bethnal Green and in Stratford.

It is a time of unparalleled activity and development at the V&A with programme of major capital projects across our sites. This includes the delivery of Young V&A in Bethnal Green, a major collection move to the new Storehouse in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, and the new V&A East Museum in the same area, which will bring more of the V&A's collections to a new and diverse audience. In delivering this ambitious, trailblazing programme, the Conservation department brings excellence and innovation to the long-term care of the V&A's collections.

As part of the Conservation Operations team, the role of Senior Conservation Project Manager will provide essential and effective interface between the Conservation department and senior colleagues at all stages of project development, with a focus on Young V&A and V&A East projects.

The post holder will be highly organised, familiar with resource planning, and will ensure key decisions are undertaken which adhere to the V&A Conservation standards and duty of care. This is a varied role which will develop alongside the Museum requirements, strategies and priorities.
