You will also help supply information to those who wish to use it and support this with outreach and educational events as appropriate.

Familiarity with heritage information management, good computing and organisational skills, good communication and interpersonal skills, ability to work as part of a team, a disciplined approach to work and good written English are also required, together with the ability to work accurately at pace and maintain progress when tasks are repetitive.
