About this Role

The FBU is the voice of firefighters in the UK, representing the uniformed front line staff of the fire and rescue services. The FBU is the only recognised trade union negotiating nationally with employers on behalf of firefighters and emergency fire control staff.  FBU is supporting our members through challenging times of public sector spending cuts and intense public and media interest in fire service provision.

The Archives of the Fire Brigades Union date back to 1919 and a significant amount of work has already been carried out in relation to managing the paper records of the FBU and transferring archive material for permanent retention to the Modern Records Centre, University of Warwick.  We are looking to recruit an experienced and organised individual to complete the transfer of paper archives to the Modern Records Centre and to plan for the ongoing management of records which need to be kept for legal and compliance purposes as well as to continue to add to the already rich historical archive. You will assess, prepare and transfer the remaining paper records to the Modern Records Centre, review the archives/records management policy and develop procedures and systems to ensure the ongoing management of the FBU’s digital records.  You will ensure that legal and compliance requirements are met with regards to the retention/destruction of records and information and that the records of historic value are captured for long term preservation.  

You will ideally have experience of setting up and/or maintaining electronic document records management systems, with the necessary IT skills, and will be a very effective communicator and team worker, who is able to work across departments within the organisation and liaise with staff at the Modern Records Centre.
