Icon Internship: Preventive Conservation
The Strawberry Hill Trust, in partnership with Icon, and with the generous support of The Pilgrim Trust and The Radcliffe Trust is offering a Preventative Conservation internship on site at the House within the Operations Department.
The Preventive Conservation intern, under the mentorship of Jennifer Dinsmore ACR, will develop and deliver a programme of preventive conservation through conservation assessments, environmental and pest monitoring, conservation cleaning and repairs and the creation of conservation and collection care policies aimed at maintaining good preventive conservation practices across the site. The candidate will gain practical, preventive and workplace skills, tailored to help them develop their career in conservation. The programme will include collaboration with Turner’s House on their conservation programme.
This internship is part time, 0.5 FTE. It is currently for one year, however there is the possibility of extension dependant on funding.
