About the role
Our digital strategy sets out the ambition to transform ourselves into an archive that is digital by instinct and design, embracing disruptive innovation to re-invent what it means to be an archive in the digital age. This role is about building our future, harnessing user research and technical innovation to create solid foundations for services that channel digital records into the archive, protect and preserve them for the future and open up access to new audiences.

About you
You will have the vision and technical expertise to design a robust and scalable architecture for digital archiving and build strategic alignment across our digital products. You will help shape the future of our digital archiving services and communicate this vision to stakeholders across government and the international digital archiving community. We are looking for an excellent communicator who thrives working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams and is passionate about applying technology to solve problems.

This is an opportunity to work with committed and talented developers, designers, archivists and researchers who share a passion for creating high quality, user-focused digital services for a range of audiences.

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.

We are committed to continually improving the diversity of our workforce and therefore encourage applications from people of colour, the LGBTQI+ community, the trans community, those who are neuro diverse, and those with a disability.
