Association of British Orchestras

Archivist (Part-time, Fixed Term)

Halle Concerts Society £35,000 (pro rata) Closing date 10 June 2022
The Hallé’s archive documents the 164-year history of the orchestra, its place in Manchester’s heritage and that of 19th & 20th century music. The collection includes letters, music, programmes, sound recordings, photographs and other printed material. As a project over the next two years, our main objective is to explore how the collections can be used to enable a wider range of people to learn about our heritage. Hallé St Peter’s offers us additional scope to welcome visitors and test out a range of activities. We’ll be planning a range of talks, exhibitions and other events alongside a programme of volunteer opportunities.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced archives professional to work alongside our current archive team. Experience in engaging with different users and other stakeholders will be invaluable. Excellent communication skills are essential.

This is a 2-year fixed term post, working two days per week. For further details including a recruitment pack and application form, please visit our website.
