Records Officer

We are on the lookout for a shining star to champion records management.

You will be part of a tight knit team undertaking a variety of exciting projects and tasks. It is envisaged that initially a percentage of your time would be dedicated to our archive and current paper-based records. As our project develops, the majority of your time will be dedicated to driving our new electronic Document and Records Management System (eDRMS) “Laserfiche”.

A passion for information management and an ability to engage and enthuse others in good record management practices is essential. Your experience and qualifications will be equaled by the ability to guide and train staff. A high level of computer literacy is required (MS-Office based products) and recent experience with a modern eDRMS would be advantageous but not essential. Relevant training will be provided where necessary to the successful candidate.
