We are looking for a qualified Archivist to join the team, working freelance for one day a week for six months initially, with the potential to extend and expand the role subject to funding. Due to the nature of the role, the successful applicant will need to work on-site in central Burton upon Trent on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

This role will act as an archive expert to support our Freelance Collections Officer and Cataloguing Assistant, trustees, and volunteers as we relocate, inventory, and catalogue the archive. You will use your expertise to help us implement policies, plans and procedures for the ongoing management of the archive, and the reinstatement of research and enquiry services.

You will also provide professional advice to the trustees as they work with East Staffordshire Borough Council and other stakeholders on the development of a new brewery centre in Burton upon Trent, which will provide a long-term home for the archive and artefact collections.
