Come and work for EAP

The aim of the Endangered Archives Programme is to help preserve archival material that is in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration in parts of the world where resources are limited. The Programme helps people locate endangered archival collections, stabilise them, and create digital copies for preservation and research. This is done by the annual award of grants. To date we have funded 300 projects in 80 countries around the world and we have over 5 million images and several thousand audio recordings available online.

We currently have a vacancy for the post of Grants Portfolio Manager. The position has the responsibility for managing a substantial range of grants including the processes for application, review, award, monitoring, delivery, and closure. You would work closely with prospective and current grantees from around the world as well as the International Advisory Board.

If you are interested in applying, please visit the British Library’s website. We are a very small and happy team at EAP and we look forward to welcoming the newest member.

Closing Date: 6 September 2016
