EMPLOYEUR & CONTEXTE :

We are one of the world’s leading authorities on conflict and its impact on people’s lives – from 1914 through to the present day and beyond. Our collections are filled with personal stories and experiences, inspiring powerful and often conflicting emotions. We aim to share these stories with as many audiences as possible across the world in a way that engages and challenges them, increasing understanding of why we go to war and the effect that conflict has on people’s lives. In other words, we expect our stories to change the way people think about war.

We rely on our staff to help us achieve this aspiration. You should be able to demonstrate the skills and competencies set out below, but equally we are looking for people who believe in what we do and who we are, and can treat every colleague, customer or visitor with respect, courtesy and honesty. We expect our staff to work flexibly and with enthusiasm. These are the qualities that make IWM such an extraordinary place to work.

Purpose of the job : This is a fixed term appointment to assist on a specific project in support of the IWM Accommodation and Storage programmes driven by the Transforming IWM London and Collections Storage strategy.

The objective is to prepare IWM Collections documentation (such as acquisition files) for their eventual move from office areas to dedicated archive storage, and the role will involve cataloguing files onto IWM’s collections management system and repackaging them for transfer. The tasks will be repetitive and to large extent involve data input, but require a level of concentration and careful attention to detail, contributing to a critical piece of work in support of IWM’s major priority projects.

The job will suit someone looking for a basic introduction to archive work or hoping to gain experience in advance of training as an archivist or records manager. Lire la suite

  • Employeur : Barnardo’s, Archive Service, London (UK) / Organisation caritative Barnardo’s, Service des Archives – Londres (Angleterre, Royaume-Uni).
  • Offre : recrutement contractuel : CDD.
  • Date limite de candidature : 15 mars 2019.

EMPLOYEUR & CONTEXTE :

About Barnardo’s : At Barnardo’s we believe in children – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. Please read about our basis and values following the link below. You will be asked questions relating to them as part of the recruitment process for this role. Barnardo’s is committed to having a diverse and inclusive workforce for staff and volunteers. We actively encourage applications from disabled, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic and male candidates as they are under-represented within Barnardo’s.

Context : Since 1867, Barnardo’s archival collections have continuously captured the role the charity has played in supporting hundreds of thousands of children and families through vital services, projects, research and campaigns. Essentially, they illustrate the large influence the charity has had on the progress of social welfare policy and practice for children in the UK, during the last two centuries.

Thus far, the Archive Service has only had the facilities and resources to support a small number of key research projects, therefore, the aim of the ‘Transforming Lives: Cataloguing the history of social welfare and health at Barnardo’s (1867 – 1980)’ project, funded by a Wellcome Trust Research Resources Award is to raise awareness of the value of these collections, increase levels of access and more widely engage with health-related humanities and social science research audiences.

Making Connections is seeking to appoint a Project Archivist to undertake a two year project entitled ‘Transforming Lives : Cataloguing the history of social welfare and health at Barnardo’s (1867 – 1980)’, funded by a Wellcome Trust Research Resources Award. The aim of the project is to catalogue two of Barnardo’s key collections and to increase levels of access, as well as more widely engage with health-related humanities and social science research audiences.
