Job Vacancy: Consultancy Valuer (Stamps)
Do you have a passion for stamp collecting? We are looking to add a Philatelist to our team to help us put together our Stamp Auction catalogues. It’s a fascinating role, working on a consultancy basis, and you’ll get to enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at all of the stamps, albums and First Day covers that we receive at our busy auction house.
We’re located just off the M6 motorway at Junction 36 and we’re a thriving team of friendly valuers, auctioneers, saleroom and support staff. We’ll be running four Stamp Auctions in 2023 and would love to have an extra pair of hands to help us make them a brilliant experience for our local, national and international buyers.
You don’t need professional experience as we can provide plenty of training.
