One of the largest fine art auction houses in the South West of England is looking for a Jewellery Valuer to join their team. The firm covers Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset, and also regularly attracts buyers from around the world who are able to bid online at all of the firm’s major sales. The Company is committed to the highest standards of ethics, probity and performance and have a long track record for identifying, valuing and selling jewellery. The successful candidate will have a number of responsibilities including valuations, cataloguing, condition reporting and pre- and post- sale administration.
The role would suit someone with a background in Jewellery or Art History, who might not have worked in an Auction House, or someone who is a keen collector of Jewellery. However, exposure to the auction world as an intern, or junior staff member would be advantageous. Strong organisational and excellent customer service skills are essential, as is the ambition to develop a career as a Valuer.
FGA / DGA / GIA preferred, however, candidates with relevant work experience will be considered.
