Apologies for cross-posting
As many of you will know the Archives and Records Association maintains two lists of Work Experience Placements on its website at;
These lists are currently updated twice a year.
This is therefore an 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, please can you send a confirmation that you are still offering this opportunity
The two lists are by far the most popular downloads on the Association'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 Wednesday 30th of June.
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;
Main Duties of Post / Opportunities Available;
Number of Posts available;
Salary (Ignore for Voluntary opportunities);
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 Association's Office in Taunton maintains a list of willing candidates who have approached them about obtaining work experience. If your service is looking for some volunteers to help with a particular project or activity you can contact the Association's Office (see http://www.archives.org.uk/content.asp?id=498)
to obtain a copy of this list.
Any services who have contacted myself or Henry Sullivan since the last update will have their changes/additions to the lists made during this update. Any questions about the two work experience lists should be directed to me.
