Our client is the national fundraising charity for art. They believe that art can make you see, think and feel differently, and through their work they help make art more accessible to as many visitors as possible, wherever they are.
Archive Manager (Temporary, part-time)
Location: King’s Cross, London
Fixed Term, 4 months
£30,000 per annum pro rata
They give grants to help museums and galleries acquire works of art for their collections, share them with wide audiences, and support the training and professional development of curators. They are supported by their growing membership of 151,000 through the National Art Pass, as well as the generosity of many trusts, foundations and other individuals.
Founded in 1903, they have a large physical archive comprising information on both their grant-making and charitable activities and the history of the charity, which is currently housed at Tate. The growth of their charitable activities, and the changes over time in their organisational culture and data management processes, means they are now looking for a proactive archivist/information management professional to undertake a review of their archiving practices and policies. A second objective, as part of the wider review, will be to assess corporate materials held currently at their offices, and prepare them for archiving.
The successful candidate will hold a relevant specialist qualification and have good knowledge of current best practice in archiving and records management, in particular digital and cloud-based solutions. They will be energetic, collaborative, enjoy shaping and leading a project, and able to drive forward change.
