Endangered Heritage, Preserving what matters to you, with YOU !
Endangered Heritage delivers conservation services and supplies to families, collectors, National and International institutions around the world. When you join our team, you are in the driving seat of your own career. Engaging with owners and custodians, personally sharing your passion with their story, and making sure history comes alive with integrity and authenticity.
Our team works closely together to bring all our skills to each treatment, giving quality assurance to our clients, and mentoring each other with tricks and methods that only experience can bring.
Some of the hardest treatments are modern materials and in a multidisciplinary lab, you will see it all: contemporary art, modern materials, archaeological, indigenous, and natural history. In fact, the work is so interesting and varied we consult with an enormous team of specialist trade experts which has led us to establish the National Endangered Skills and Trades Show. You will meet taxidermists, French polishers, bookbinders, and clockmakers, etc.
So, no matter what future you dream of, there will steppingstones to achieve it with us.
At Endangered Heritage, it isn’t all about history. It is about protecting the future of our past. We undertake research and encourage publishing, we organise an Annual Science Award and we support professional development. If your skills are in IT and cutting-edge technology that is brilliant because we have a growing IT department assisting in collection management issues and IT concerns for small museums and collectors. As we know the future of our past is digital. Digital treatment is also a growing area with 3D printing and drone surveying of sites in our future with the right people. There is a rapidly growing field of digitisation and digital photographic conservation, all requiring experts to be as careful and dedicated as our conservators on nonvirtual artefacts.
Entry-level positions also exist for people ambitious to start in our retail shop supplying museums and families with the means to care for their own collections.
The breadth of work we do requires a competitive and energetic team. If you think you have what it takes and want to live the dream job, then get in touch!
"In 2019 I had the opportunity and pleasure to be an intern at Endangered Heritage under the guidance of Victoria and her highly qualified and expert staff. This internship provided an invaluable experience, unchallenged by university training. Victoria went above and beyond to find projects catering to my interests and I had unique, hands-on involvement in conservation within a professional company, that went beyond any university class. "
Georgia Reed, ANU Intern 2019
" I started working with Endangered Heritage in early 2019. Since then I have worked my way up to a full-time position in early 2020. The breadth of treatments and materials that I have dealt with has been phenomenal, allowing me to continue to grow and learn. Aside from treatments, I have also been encouraged and supported to develop other areas of interest within the business, from business administration to archaeological fieldwork.
Additionally, the support for research and outside professional development has allowed me to continue to grow my professional identity within Conservation."
Bretony Colville, Senior Objects and Archeological Conservator
