Parliamentary Archives

Parliamentary records are at the heart of our democracy. They have embodied our liberties, rights and responsibilities for over five hundred years. The Parliamentary Archives helps Parliament work more efficiently and openly, enabling it to make its decisions and act as effectively as possible. And we want to inspire everyone with the compelling story of Parliament, people, and communities right up to the present day.

The Archives is a shared service of both Houses of Parliament, based in the House of Lords Department of Information Services but jointly funded by both Houses of Parliament. It provides innovative and expert information management, preservation, access and outreach services enabling anyone in the world to use Parliament’s records, both now and in the future. It holds over 8km of physical records dating back to 1497 and its digital repository is now operational and growing rapidly. These records include many of the most important constitutional records in the UK, such as the Bill of Rights, the 1832 Great Reform Act and the Death Warrant of Charles I, as well as four million others which have touched the lives of everyone and every community in this country and many abroad.

There are three teams in the Archives: Information & Records Management Service; Public Services & Outreach; and Preservation & Access. The Preservation & Access team brings together responsibility for preservation and conservation of records in all formats, their cataloguing, digitisation and online access.

Collection Care is based in the Preservation & Access Team within the Parliamentary Archives. It manages a range of conservation and preservation activities to help secure the physical and chemical stability of the archive collections for the benefit of public access. This post is an opportunity for a self-motivated individual with some practical experience in arts and crafts. Do you enjoy lots of practical work, and like the idea of working on different archive collections? Can you communicate your enthusiasm about your work to encourage people to take an interest in conservation and heritage? If yes, this could be the right opportunity for you!

The role requires a broad interest in developing cultural heritage, conservation and preservation skills. This position will challenge your creative skills alongside developing your scientific and historic knowledge. The successful applicant, whilst maintaining and developing our archive services in a stimulating environment, will focus on gaining valuable work experience that will help you to develop as a heritage professional. You will be involved in a range of technical and professional work and be provided with excellent developmental opportunities.

The job is offered as a training post and will be on a fixed-term basis running from 1 September 2017 until 31 August 2018. The post will report to the Collection Care Manager and you will be supervised and mentored by colleagues with the aim of preparing you for a career in Collections Care. Essentially the post aims to provide valuable experience for someone wishing to undertake a Technicians Diploma or further education in Conservation/Collection Care/Preservation Management, specifically relating to the care of archive and library collection materials. Candidates will be expected to start this application process during the training period. Further education courses normally start around September 2018, for more information on what is expected, including fees, please search through conservation/preservation professional bodies: Icon (Institute of Conservation), Archives and Records Association (ARA).

The job is intended for someone who has no other means of gaining the necessary experience in order to qualify for entry to such courses. Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously held significant paid employment in museums, galleries, archives or libraries, and who have no existing postgraduate conservation training. The post is not designed for students already enrolled in full or part-time conservation courses, including distance learning further education courses.
