The Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC) in San Diego, CA is growing and we are looking for a Conservation Services Manager to support our team. This position will be an important addition to the BACC team, as it expands its service to fulfill a reinvisioned mission to serve a more diverse audience and make conservation more accessible and relevant to all communities.

The Conservation Services Manager will support BACC’s fee-for-service conservation work by helping us visualize, strategize, and operationalize for positive change.  The ideal candidate will have a passion for service management and collections care.
