Person required to undertake an audit and survey for ICRI

ICRI Conservation Skills Survey

The Board of ICRI would like  to commission  a person to undertake an audit and survey of conservation skills profiles and experience in Ireland. The purpose of the survey is to help highlight the gaps in professional skills and material expertise in the country, and identify areas requiring support.

The Conservation Skills Survey will provide information on:

 -          The conservation skills profile of ICRI members (ca. 140) working on the island of Ireland         

 -          The conservation skills and skills gaps within our main cultural institutions, and regional collections, and the present and future (5 - 10 years) requirements for their collections

-              The specialist conservation skills currently being procured from outside Ireland.

-          How  ICRI could help address the skills gaps via CPD support and    training opportunities.

-          How the 2021 results compare to those of 2013 survey, and the key findings.

It is envisioned that the survey will be undertaken using Survey Monkey with additional information acquired via phone interviews. A small working group of ICRI members will be available for direction in compilation of questions and assistance throughout the project.

The project is expected to take 3 months to complete. The mandatory completion date for the final report is 1st October 2021. A draft report is to be submitted 3 weeks before final report due date with the final report submitted in pdf format.

The fee for this project is: €4,000 inclusive of  VAT. 50% of the fee will be paid on submission of draft report and the final 50% on submission of the final report.

Please send your application of interest, including an outline of previous experience and your Curriculum Vitae to secretary@icriconservation by April 30th. 

The successful applicants will be interviewed in early May.
