Digital Preservation Analyst
Permanent, Full Time
Archives New Zealand
• Key opportunity to mix technical capability with policy and research
• Leading-edge all-of-government programme
Archives New Zealand has a statutory responsibility for the long term storage, preservation and accessibility of digital records. The Government Digital Archive Programme will transform the way Archives conducts its business, allowing large-scale transfers of digital records and preserving them over the long-term.
You will be tasked with providing business-focused digital preservation strategies for material held within the digital archive and specialist advice in relation to formats and metadata. You will work with others to research and resolve complex technical issues related to the digital archive, such as format variations, validation and enrichment processes, and preservation risks. You'll also be involved in the development of Digital Preservation policy, both within Archives and with our collaborative partners, and can expect to be working on a variety of research projects related to the Digital Archive and preservation.
You will work closely with a team which includes analysts, archivists and ingest technicians, and with business staff managing transfers, restrictions and access.
This is a busy role in an active programme of work. You'll need excellent communication skills, be an adaptable team player, have previous experience in digital preservation, and a related degree.
In return, you'll get to work on an exciting, All-of-Government digital preservation project, that will change the way New Zealanders interact with Government records.
