Digitisation Technician (Still media) (IWM Duxford) - x2 part-time
The digitisation team converts our analogue collections to enable them to be accessed (for example through collections search) and preserved digitally. The team includes technicians, contract or fee paid staff and volunteers and, in addition, work is also contracted out to third-party suppliers. In all instances the team deliver to internal customers who then connect content with our audiences.
The digitisation team is grouped by why (access or preservation) we digitise the collection and the type of collections that we work to digitise (still or time-based media).
Our access team will deliver on-demand requests to enable the collection to be used in our public, learning and commercial programmes. Our preservation team will digitise our most vulnerable assets now, as many of the assets will no longer be in good enough condition to digitise in five years’ time. This project is called Digital Futures.
As a digitisation technician for still media within our collections you will work with objects of all types, shapes, materials and sizes. For example; works of art on paper, books, documents, photographic prints and negatives.
29 hours net per week (Preservation team) / 14.5 hours net per week (Access team)
