Dear list members

With the usual apologies for cross-posting, please find below details of a
new 30-month contract vacancy for an Oral History Project Co-Ordinator
based at the National Railway Museum, York, UK.
 Details of this vacancy have already been posted to some list-servs, but
the closing date for the post has now been extended. 
==============================================================================
JOB OPPORTUNITY

FRIENDS OF THE NATIONAL RAILWAY MUSEUM (registered charity no. 273829)
in association with
THE NATIONAL RAILWAY MUSEUM

Project Co-ordinator - National Archive of Railway Oral History

Salary - to 20,188

The Friends of the National Railway Museum (FNRM) has recently been awarded
Heritage Lottery funding to develop a National Archive of recorded personal
recollections of people who worked on or were associated with railways.
The project has been funded for two and a half years and is intended to
result in the creation of a publicly accessible archive of railway oral
history that will be capable of being maintained and added to into the
foreseeable future.

Management of the project will be through a Steering Group including
representatives from the FNRM, the railway industry, the National Railway
Museum (NRM), and the National Sound Archive. The Steering Group now wishes
to recruit a Project Co-ordinator who will have responsibility for the
day-to-day delivery of the project's objectives.

The post is based at the National Railway Museum in York, and the NRM will
be providing administrative and personnel support for the post via its
Library & Archive Department.  The postholder will be recruited as a
supernumerary member of the NRM staff for the duration of the project, and
standard NMSI employment terms and conditions will apply.

The postholder will not normally be expected to carry out interviewing but
will oversee the training and deployment of a team of volunteer
interviewers, and processing the completed interview recordings.  The
postholder will also compile regular project progress reports for both the
Steering Group and the HLF, and carry out other reporting and project
management duties as required.  In addition the postholder will undertake a
national survey of existing oral history resources which are relevant to
railway history, and will produce a guide to these sources.

Applicants should be of graduate calibre and possess demonstrable project
management experience.  Relevant skills from work in the fields of oral
history, archives, museums or special libraries would be a distinct
advantage.  In addition, the postholder must have excellent verbal and
written communication skills be familiar with email, the Web and the
Microsoft Office software packages.  Previous experience of the supervision
of volunteer workers would also be advantageous.

For further details and an application form (closing date 1 March 2000)
please contact the Personnel Department, National Railway Museum, Leeman
Road, York YO26 4XJ
Alternatively ring 01904 621261 or email [log in to unmask] 

If you have not heard from us by 24 March 2000, you should assume that you
have not been short-listed for interview.  The NRM is an equal
opportunities employer.
