Deputy Project Director - HMS Victory, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE ROYAL NAVY

HMS Victory is the world's only surviving example of a first-rate line of battle ship from the age of sail. Since 2012, the National Museum of the Royal Navy has been leading the work to care for the ship and ensure its survival in perpetuity.

In 2022, the NMRN began work on a major programme of work, estimated at £40million over ten to fifteen years, intended to ensure the ship is in a condition to survive, outdoors, with a programme of planned maintenance, for a period of not less than fifty years. This exciting project draws together traditional craft skills such as shipwrightry and rigging with cutting edge technologies including Nano-science, structural analysis and 4D archaeological recording, all within view of the half-million visitors per annum that visit Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

As the programme of work increases, the Museum is seeking to expand its capacity to ensure the project sets new standards across the heritage sector. The postholder will deputise for the Project Director and play a key role in the ongoing development and delivery of the project.
