Job Description

We are excited you have visited our Careers page. We are seeking talented individuals that are excellent in their field of expertise and are posed with all potential and skills necessary to help us meet future business challenges. We are now seeking a Director of Conservation and Collections Care & Access who will provide visionary and strong leadership for a wide-ranging and multi-disciplinary division, bringing together the expertise of the Conservation, Collections Care & Access and Technical Services teams, to support the management, care and display of the V&A’s collections as we move towards a multi-site museum. The post-holder will operate across several sites, leading an efficient, creative, effective and high-quality professional service, supporting those stakeholders across the museum that depend on the division’s services and collaboration. An ability to bring innovative thinking to a complex department, and to successfully introduce and manage change, will be crucial in the years ahead. By 2024 the V&A will have moved its entire reserve collection from Blythe House in West London to a new Collections and Research Centre (CRC) at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford. This unprecedented opportunity to consolidate our collections is pivotal to the V&A’s ambitious plans for the CRC. It will provide the opportunity to radically rethink the V&A’s approach to Conservation and Collections Care & Access, and to deliver an open-access philosophy through a visitor-centered experience at the CRC.
