In terms of both quality and diversity, the Royal Collection Trust collection of photographs is breath-taking, with works dating from the 1840s to the present day.
It’s a ‘living’ collection, yet there are fascinating stories here that have lain untold for decades. Joining the team at the heart of uncovering these, you’ll help to research and bring them alive – not just through inspiring exhibitions but also catalogues, presentations and displays.
Developing your own expertise, as well as the teams’ knowledge, you’ll also share your discoveries with a wider audience through presentation and interpretation.
At the same time, you’ll make sure the photograph collection has proper custodial control, and will edit and update existing online records, ensuring they are accessible and easy to navigate.
Drawing on expertise from teams across Royal Collection Trust, collaboration will be part of your daily routine and will be key to your success.
But, above all, your passion for engaging people with history will help to preserve the photographic heritage of this unique collection.
