Curators manage museum and gallery collections and may have a range of other responsibilities (e.g. fundraising, public engagement) depending on the size of the museum or gallery in which they work.
Curators will often have qualifications in their particular specialist area so, for example, a curator of ancient Greek or Roman artefacts is likely to have studied in a relevant field, such as ancient history or archaeology. As a result, a postgraduate research qualification is often valued in the field. You can find information on working as a curator on the Prospects website.
Other roles that involve ensuring that collections are properly cared for involve Collections Managers.
