We have an incredibly rich history to preserve and it’s you who will make a valuable contribution.
Our community archives and Council records are housed in a state-of-the-art facility located next to, and run in conjunction with the Invercargill Public Library – a team of which you’ll be part. It’s a secure yet accessible home to our city’s most precious records – records that will provide a window to the past for generations to come.
To cover a period of parental leave, we now wish to appoint a 12-month fixed term Archivist to manage and maintain our substantial collection of archives with the support of an Assistant Archivist. Ideally you will have a relevant tertiary degree and a significant background in archives, library or record management systems. You’ll enjoy sharing your world with the public and the many researchers sourcing heritage information and will be working with the latest in technologies and archival standards.
With a heritage as rich as ours there are any number of stories told and untold and you’ll be integral in their preservation.
