Apologies for cross-posting

Dear Colleagues

As many of you will know the Society of Archivists maintains two lists of 
Work Experience Placements on its website at;

http://www.archives.org.uk/careerdevelopment/startingout/workexperienceplacements.html 
or http://tinyurl.com/249eg7

These lists are currently updated twice a year in April and September. This 
is therefore a somewhat late appeal to all archive and records management 
services in the UK and Ireland to provide any additional entries or 
alterations to the two lists. If you already have an entry on either list 
and are happy with it, you do not need to get back to me until April next 
year.

The two lists are by far the most popular downloads on the Society's website 
and work experience is the most popular subject for career enquiries outside 
of basic information requests. We are keen to have as many entries on the 
two lists as possible, so as to provide a useful source of information to 
those seeking such experience.

The placement can be a formal paid post or simply a willingness to take on 
volunteers. The only requirements are that it provides specifically archive 
and / or records management experience and that it must be regularly 
provided, either at set times of the year or on an approach basis.

The deadline to respond with additions and alterations will be Friday the 
31st of October.

Below is a template of how your details will be displayed on the list. If 
you can record the details of your placement(s) in these fields, this will 
help with data input.

Name of Organisation;

Region:

Main Duties of Post / Opportunities Available;

Number of Posts available;

Salary (Ignore for Voluntary opportunities);

Duration;

When Advertised (Ignore for Voluntary opportunities);

Address & Contact;


May I also take this opportunity to draw the attention of potential 
employers of work experience volunteers that the Society's Office in Taunton 
maintains a list of willing candidates who have approached them about 
obtaining work experience. It has grown considerably over the last year, as 
submissions to the list can now be made online through the Society's 
website, but there has been a poor take up by employers. If your service is 
looking for some volunteers to help with a particular project or activity 
you can contact the Society's Office (see 
http://www.archives.org.uk/content.asp?id=498) to obtain a copy of this 
list.

A newer addition to the Starting Out section of the Society's website is a 
series of updated case studies of people working in the record keeping 
sector at all stages and in many different areas of the career. You can find 
these vignettes at;

http://www.archives.org.uk/careerdevelopment/startingout/casestudiesofcareersinarchivesandrecordsmanagement.html 
or http://tinyurl.com/4l8kem

Finally it is hoped that at some point in 2009 there will be a section in 
one of the ARC magazines on volunteering and work experience. I would 
therefore be very interested in hearing from any colleagues who would be 
willing to write short articles on how their service has;

Used volunteers as part of a project
Developed volunteering groups
Supported Work Experience placements at any level (from school to mature 
career changer)
Acquired funding and support for a paid traineeship

I would also be very interested in hearing from anyone who is currently 
working as a paid trainee or volunteering for some work experience and is 
willing to write a short article about their experience in getting to where 
they are now.
