Lichfield recruitment: On the lookout for valuer to catalogue antiques and collectables
DO you have an eye for antiques and collectables? Have you wanted to get into the endlessly fascinating, everchanging world of auctions?
Richard Winterton Auctioneers is recruiting for more staff following another surge in business and we’re on the lookout for another valuer to catalogue all types of collectables, ceramics, pictures, curiosities and antiques at The Lichfield Auction Centre, Wood End Lane, Fradley Park.
“Antiques and the everchanging auction world are just getting more and more popular and this is a great way to get started in this fascinating industry,” said auctioneer Richard Winterton.
“We continued to grow and improve our services throughout the difficult times of Covid and invested back into the area with 10 extra staff.
“Now we’re on the hunt again for someone with a good all-round knowledge of collectables and antiques to join our team in the role of valuer and cataloguer.
“The job could be full or part-time and candidates should have good computer literacy skills.”
Thousands of online bidders from all over the world join the firm’s live auctions and cataloguing lots – and sending them out once sold – is a huge logistical exercise.
As well as dealing in jewellery, watches, fine art and all types of collectables, the firm provides a bespoke house clearance service which has expanded greatly – in March 2022 alone, Richard visited 82 houses to give quotations and the team cleared 62 properties.
The Lichfield Auction Centre also regularly appears on television as part of BBC Bargain Hunt and Dickinson’s Real Deal on ITV.
