Tennants is one of the UK’s leading Specialist Auctioneers and a fourth-generation family business. With 27 Specialist departments and an international reach, Tennants holds more than 85 auctions each year and connects buyers and sellers in more than 75 countries.

We are always interested to hear from those who share our passion and we welcome speculative applications.  At present, we also have the following specific opportunity:

Books, Maps and Manuscripts Specialist

You will be responsible for curating four specialist sales each year as well as consigning items for the fortnightly Antiques and Interiors Sales.  In addition to providing appraisals for individual items and collections for auction, you will also provide professional valuations for insurance, probate and family division.  You will therefore need significant proven experience in a similar environment and be capable of providing accurate cataloguing and valuations for all purposes.  You will be responsible for all aspects of the department and will work as part of the Valuation Team so you will need to be able to work collaboratively and on your own initiative, to tight deadlines.

You can find more information about the Books, Maps and Manuscripts Department here

Please email Jo Fletcher-Lee, Commercial Director for an informal discussion in confidence about this, or other opportunities at Tennants.
