Postition Announcement

From: guardian jobs

East London
Salary: £20,000-£25,000 - Two-year fixed-term contract - Greenwich
Closing date: 24 Jul 2006

With our ambitious collections programme, the National Maritime Museum brings Britain's maritime history to life by illustrating the importance of the sea, ships, time and the stars - and their relationship with people. In this fascinating role, you'll help us engage an ever-wider range of audiences by ensuring visitors have the best possible access to our collections.

Investigating our current use of collections data, you'll liaise widely with staff to develop fresh guidelines and procedures in terminology control for the Museum's collections records. In the process, you'll research best practice across the museum, libraries and archives sector as you apply the experience of other relevant institutions to our requirements.

Along with a degree in a relevant subject, you'll need substantial relevant experience - including some spent applying documentation standards and using collections management databases in a similar environment. We want to meet someone who can communicate at all levels, write detailed reports and guidelines, and work effectively both on their own and as part of a team.
