Archive Programme Manager

Organisation: The National Trust for Scotland

Salary: £35,023 – £38,738

Location: Hermiston Quay

As the NTS adjusts to new ways of working we are embarking on an ambitious review of the content of our corporate archive, the service delivery model, and the long-term storage of the archive. The NTS archives include collections currently held at a number of properties and offices across Scotland, as well as Hermiston Quay, the NTS headquarters building. This exciting new role will work closely with the NTS Archivist to lead an ambitious programme of work developing a strategy and action plan for the future management of the Trust’s corporate and historic property archives, both physical and digital. The NTS has already started to plan this programme of review and development with support from expert archive consultants. The post-holder will be expected to further develop the programme, to manage a small project team, and co-ordinate a programme of work spanning several years including engaging with both internal and external stakeholders and playing a key role in the development of a costed options appraisal to find a new home for the archives for when the NTS vacates its Head Office in 2025.
