I received this this Morning. Might be of interest for our UK friends.

Specialist Auctions Describer

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Specialist Auction Describer to join our busy Auction team.

Candidates should have a strong general stamp knowledge including stamps of Great Britain and the British Commonwealth. Good I.T. skills are useful but not essential as training will be provided.

The ability to work in a team is important and a passion for the hobby is essential. This is an excellent opportunity to work for the most famous stamp dealer in the world and handle some of the rarest philatelic material.

Joining a busy and growing Auction team, the successful applicant should be able to evaluate collections quickly and accurately with an ability to identify rare material.

You would be responsible for describing and estimating lots for our auctions and helping to identify and value key material for future auctions.

More information and a full job specification are available on request.

To apply in confidence, please send your CV and a summary of why you would be suitable for this role to ***email address removed*** by Monday, 16th September.

The problem with this, is to have that much experience and have the general experience of worldwide stamps you got to have 50 + years of experience .

Some describers can be irritating to the uninitiated,
Fauna , Flora etc are sometimes inscribed on the stamp in Botanical names,
then listed in the catalogue like "Foxglove" or "Asian Badger"
