Job: Cataloguer - Photography Collections / closes 2 February 2020

The National Trust photography collections include around 550,000 objects located at 250 properties in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Dating from the 1840s through to today, they include prints, albums, cased objects, negatives, slides and photographic equipment. The in-situ nature of the collections sets them apart in the UK, offering rich opportunities to explore the social, cultural, political and economic aspects of photography.

This role, initially offered on a two-year fixed-term basis, is focused on enhancing the Trust's catalogue for the photography collections.

Are you excited by the prospect of new research, creating national connections and improving public access? The photography collections at the Trust are significantly under-researched and under-recognised. This role offers a rare opportunity to someone with a background in photography and a good sense of initiative.

We are offering two 2-year fixed-term contracts. Each will be part-time, working three days (22.5 hours) per week. Salary £27,735 pro rata
