INSPECTION AND CLIENT MANAGEMENT UNIT
RECORDS MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT
PUBLIC RECORD OFFICE

Social scientist with statistical skills: full-time permanent

Starting salary: 21,690-27,474

Background

The Public Record Office (PRO) is The National Archives, holding the records
of central government from the Domesday Book to the present day. The PRO is
involved in selecting records from government departments, making them
available to the public, and preserving them for future researchers. The
PRO is an Executive Agency and also a separate Government Department
accountable to the Lord Chancellor. Based in Kew, Surrey, the Office employs
about 470 staff and holds 160 kilometres of public records. Each year, on
average, a further two kilometres of records are accessioned into the PRO.

Job Purpose

Records Management Department is the part of the PRO which works with other
government departments to improve records management practices and to select
and transfer - or accession - records for permanent preservation in
accordance with the Public Records Acts 1958 and 1967.

Records Management Department has recently been reorganised and we now have
a vacancy for a client manager who has a social science background and, in
particular, has expertise in statistical methods and sampling techniques.
You will be responsible for a group of government departments which have a
high proportion of statistical records or where we need to employ sampling
techniques to give a picture of, for example, social or economic trends.
Your role would include selecting records worthy of permanent preservation
and promoting a high standard of records management. You would also be
expected to provide expert advice to others in Records Management Department
on the selection of statistical records in their departments. The post
would be particularly suitable for someone with a postgraduate qualification
in the social sciences or in statistics but we would also be interested to
hear from those without an advanced qualification but with substantial
experience of using and interpreting statistical information.

The role of a client manager is a demanding one. The growth in electronic
records means that client managers need to be comfortable working in an
increasingly automated environment. The ability to influence others,
including at senior levels, is essential. Client managers perform a dual
role, acting both as an auditor and an adviser. This requires sensitivity
and diplomacy and an ability to manage relationships to achieve results.
Client managers spend some time travelling to other government departments
around the country and are required to work with limited supervision.


Main responsibilities of the post

* developing and revising policies for selecting statistical records
and applying those policies in overseeing the selection of records in the
departments within your remit
* managing relations with departments within your remit to ensure they
follow best practice standards in records management
* providing guidance on the public records implications of the
government's information policy (e.g. data protection and freedom of
information legislation)
* providing specialist advice to other client managers or to
government departments outside your immediate remit


Person specification

You will have:

Essential

* degree or equivalent in the social sciences, statistics or a related
discipline, preferably to postgraduate level
* a sound understanding of statistical methods and sampling techniques
* a proven ability to manage work to meet deadlines and targets
* good interpersonal skills, including the ability to balance
assertiveness with diplomacy
* an ability to initiate and manage change
* a commitment to providing a client-focused service
* IT literacy

Desirable

* an interest in modern British history
* an understanding of how government policy is developed and
implemented
