You must be an excellent communicator and be able to build relationships and provide specialist technical advice to the public, contractors, and other persons and bodies as appropriate, in connection with heritage issues. You must be capable of independent working and managing a large and varied workload with minimal supervision.  However, there will be occasions when you will liaise with other departments to develop ways to present the Royal Hospital Chelsea and its collections to both internal and external audiences.

This is a permanent full time role working 41 hours per week and the salary is in the region of £45,000.  Other benefits include a Civil Service pension scheme, on-site gym and cafe. 

As this position requires the applicant to have regular contact with adults with care and support needs, the successful applicant will be required to complete an enhanced disclosure which will be processed by the Disclosure & Barring Service..

The ethos of the Royal Hospital is one that puts a premium on selflessness and companionship.  Our values of nurturing belonging, respect individuals, encourage pride and enjoy life underpin that ethos. They apply equally to all members of our community.

Diversity and equality of opportunity matter at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. We want to attract the broadest range of talented people to be part of our team – the more diverse our workforce, the better able we are to respond to and reflect the breadth of our community.
