The Parliamentary Archives are recruiting an experienced, dynamic and innovative information management professional who will lead our work to preserve and provide online access to Parliament's archival collections.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to lead the development and management of preservation and online access at a major national archive, with a particular emphasis on developing innovative digital services for users. The Preservation & Access team of 12 staff brings together responsibility for preservation of records in all forms, their cataloguing and digitisation, and the provision of online access to records and finding aids. Key strategic priorities for the team include building an expanding range of innovative online services and digital resources for users, the future development of our archives management systems, supporting the Archives Accommodation Programme, embedding digital preservation as business-as-usual and expanding the range of digital records to be ingested, and continuing to develop our exemplary collection care service and digitisation programme.

You will be an experienced information management professional, with excellent leadership skills and proven experience of improving online access to archival information, underpinned by a high level of familiarity with major development trends in ICT, and the ability to innovate and act as an ‘intelligent client’ for the Archives. You will be familiar with the full range of activities in the Preservation & Access portfolio, with proven experience of managing teams or projects to support strategic aims in at least one area. You will have excellent communication, interpersonal and influencing skills, and experience of leading or participating in project or programme boards and developing successful business cases.
