Enabling trusted government information
At Archives New Zealand Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga we work to ensure effective, trusted government record-keeping for the benefit of all New Zealanders. We preserve and protect more than seven million official records, from 19th century treaties to 21st century documents and data. Our goal is for all New Zealanders to easily access and use this taonga, connecting you to your rights and entitlements and stories – now and for the future.
Archives New Zealand is undertaking a transformational programme of work in support of the Archives 2057 Strategy. One of the workstreams in this programme is to ensure that our holdings in our Wellington repository are ready for any future changes in our premises and services required by the Preserving the Nation’s Memory Project. To prepare and plan for these changes the Business Readiness Team will ensure we have a detailed picture of where we are now, and where we are heading.
The Wellington Office has 80km of archival holdings - you will be building your knowledge of these holdings and ensuring they are appropriately listed and managed in accordance with our standards, systems and processes.
To be successful in the role you will have:
· a working knowledge of archives and record management systems
· a high level of analytical and problem-solving skills
· an ability to establish and maintain collaborative working relationships with your team and the wider business.
If you thrive on cutting edge projects, a genuine challenge, and knowing that what you do, you do for the good of New Zealand, we would very much like to hear from you.
We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity and inclusion. We recognise a diverse workforce contributes to better business outcomes. We are committed to creating a workplace where all employees have equal access.
