Salary: £22,150-£25,212 per annum
Starting: 1 September 2017 until 31 August 2018
Based in the Public Services & Outreach Team and reporting to the Senior Archivist, this post is an opportunity for a self-motivated graduate to gain work experience maintaining and developing our archives services in a stimulating environment, prior to taking up a place on a post-graduate archives/records management course. The post holder would be involved in a wide range of professional work and be provided with good developmental opportunities.
The job is offered as a training post and will be on a fixed-term basis running from 1 September 2017 until 31 August 2018, with the intention that this will provide experience for a person wishing to undertake a post-graduate qualification in archives & records management starting in September 2018. Candidates will be expected to start the application process during the training period.
The job is intended for someone who has no other means of gaining the necessary experience in order to qualify for entry to such a course. Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously held significant paid employment in archives, and who have no existing postgraduate archives training. The post is not designed for students already enrolled in full or part-time archives courses, including distance learning courses.
The post involves computer work, extensive manual handling, use of ladders and work in the Victoria Tower (up to the 12th floor).
