Vacancy / Secondment Opportunity at the DPC

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Position Type: Full time, 12months fixed term
Salary: 31,948 to 39,257 GBP
Closing Date: 1200 15/02/2013
Location: Glasgow or York

The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) seeks to recruit an experienced and capable member of staff to work closely with the Executive Director of the Coalition in a communications role. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a high-profile and wide-ranging role. The post has two functions: to design and deliver a range of communications and information-provision tasks in support of the DPC strategic plan; and to deliver the Coalition’s commitments to a new international research project ‘4C’. Because the DPC’s role in the 4C project is primarily concerned with communications, these functions are complementary and have been combined into a single post. Recruitment will be to the DPC offices in Glasgow or York and is available immediately for 12 months.

You will work internationally with the world’s leading authorities in digital preservation, helping to communicate first class research, connecting leaders and professionals from different sectors and disciplines, and helping to influence public policy. You will have the opportunity to develop an exceptional international portfolio of professional contacts and you will gain experience in the operation of EC-funded research ahead of the commencement of the 80bn Euro investment in the Horizon 2020 programme.
You will have strong communication skills with experience of new media, but with enough knowledge of digital preservation – or with a proven capacity to learn quickly – in order that you can support and engage others with the outcomes of cutting edge research.

DPC welcomes proposals from its members about secondments of existing staff.
