Fixed Term

Archives are the homes for our collective memories, past, present and future. We are the archive of the UK government, a leading national and international archive. Our ambition is to become an inclusive, entrepreneurial and disruptive digital archive, constantly adapting and reshaping archival practice.


We are looking for a Cataloguing Officer to support our work. This is a para-professional role and does not require a postgraduate qualification.

Based in the Cataloguing, Taxonomy and Data team, you will play an important role in cataloguing a large collection of Ministry of Defence service personnel files. Employing your excellent attention to detail and strong communication skills, you will help to ensure data quality and accuracy, mainly through examining original records and extracting relevant data. This is a unique opportunity to work on a project of unprecedented scale with records of immense historical significance.


This is a full time post. However, requests for part-time working, flexible working and job share will be considered, taking into account at all times the operational needs of the Department. A combination of onsite and home working is available and applicants should be able to regularly travel to our Kew site.
