£37,500 - £45,583


Based in the Preservation & Access Team, this exciting role manages the Parliamentary Archives’ digital preservation activities, providing both professional and technical oversight, ensuring the use of best practice in terms of digital archives.

The role would suit someone with strong digital skills and strong interpersonal skills, who would enjoy working closely with Digital Service and Archives colleagues to ensure the continued preservation and accessibility of Parliament’s digital records. We’re looking for someone with a solid understanding of Archives, Records Management and Digital Preservation principles and experience in the sector.

This is a particularly exciting time to join Parliament. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate and contribute at a time of change, as the Restoration & Renewal and Archives Relocation Programmes are affecting and changing the Archives’ work and priorities and our new Information and Data Strategy demonstrates a commitment that all information will be valued, managed, protected, and used, whether it be paper and parchment or the latest digital formats. Over the next year, we will be re-tendering for a Web Archiving contract, working with the Digital Service to review the digital repository, its support and maintenance, looking at embedding robust ingest processes and taking a holistic view of ingest, intake and cataloguing processes, regardless of record format.
