We're looking for a record-keeping professional to be a part of our Information Governance Unit and support our response to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry. You will also help provide public and officer access to the city's 900 years of archives from time to time.

You won't do this alone. Our 20-strong Information Governance Unit works with colleagues and stakeholders from across the organisation and outside, including the Scottish Government, regulators, statutory inquiries, and other public sector partners. As a team, we ensure the Council creates, manages, shares, and disposes of its information effectively and appropriately.

On top of this, you will be part of the Council's multi-disciplinary project team that responds to the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry when it issues requests for information or records. This team includes specialists in social work, HR, legal and internal audit.

You must have a postgraduate qualification in archives and records management, or equivalent sector experience.

Your primary responsibilities will be to:

  • Search historic and semi-current social work and governance records and systems

  • Research and respond to a range of audiences, including care experienced individuals, the police and the national inquiry itself

  • Investigate missing records, write reports on what happened and make recommendations on what needs to change


As part of the Archives & Records Team, you will also support the wider development and promotion of effective information asset management across the organisation. This includes:
Responding to enquiries from both the public and colleagues

  • Facilitating access to both the City Archives, as well as records held in our Records Centre

  • Preserving archives, both physical and digital, through assessment and intervention

  • Engaging with communities and depositors to promote, enrich and diversify the collections within the City Archives

  • Undertaking assessments of business processes and systems against relevant standards and policies

  • Supporting information governance processes such as privacy impact assessments and subject access / freedom of information requests

  • Drafting and providing briefings, presentations, reports, and training to colleagues and stakeholders

  • Supporting and training volunteers to undertake basic archive management tasks

  • Contributing to information governance projects
