About the role
The services delivered by the Communities, Economy and Transport department (CET) have an enormous impact on the lives of local people and the natural environment. From operating waste facilities and registration offices, to maintaining roads and major infrastructure planning, the moment an East Sussex resident steps outside their front door, they are interacting with our work. Therefore, roles in our department offer enormous scope to make a positive impact on the quality of life for people and the environment of East Sussex. We are looking for people who can help us to improve the links between the areas we operate in, such as using libraries, improving adult literacy, transporting vulnerable people to the shops to help keep them independent or installing high speed broadband to support businesses to modernise.
The Record Centre is home to over 300,000 files on subjects ranging from adoption and pupil records to deeds and contracts. As legislative requirements on storing information, particularly personal data, become ever tighter, the Council is making sure that provisions for record keeping are efficient and in line with legislation.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for one full-time and one part-time (four days a week) Records Project Clerk to support an existing small project team to conclude a project to review the Council’s records holdings and improve the efficiency of our records management systems. Your main focus in this role will be to audit the holdings and ensure everything is recorded and listed correctly on the system. You will also retrieve records due for disposal and you will use your eye for detail to carry out due diligence checks to ensure the right records get destroyed. You will need to operate specialist equipment (mobile electric working platforms) to reach the higher shelves, full training will be given.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
