Thanks to the support of Barts Charity, Barts Health NHS Trust Archives is looking for a Project Archivist who will catalogue records of the Charity and its predecessor organisations. The position is fixed-term for 6 months. Barts Charity manages the historic endowments of the hospitals that make up Barts Health NHS Trust and supports the work of staff and researchers at Barts Health NHS Trust and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

In addition to appraising, listing, sorting and repackaging records, the post holder will work with the project conservator and volunteers to prioritise records for conservation and repackaging work, promote the collection as a research resource, and digitise illustrative material from the collections. 

Barts Health NHS Trust Archives and Museums holds material dating from the 12th Century onwards, including records of over 30 hospitals, together with a significant collection of art and historic artefacts.
