As the living, growing home of our national story, The National Archives is already a special place to work. We’re an institution nearly 200 years old with a collection spanning 1,000 years of history. But it’s where we go next that makes things really interesting .

In our strategic vision: Archives for Everyone, we set ourselves the challenge of becoming the 21st Century national archive - a different kind of cultural and heritage institution: Inclusive, Entrepreneurial, Disruptive. We won’t become this overnight. It will take time, focus, effort and daring.

That’s where you come in. Because we can’t do this without you.

The National Archives is looking for an experienced project manager and/or grant manager to oversee the successful delivery of a number of strategic grant-funded projects. This will initially include the management of the three-year Digitising the National Farm Survey project (£2.13m), funded by the Lund Trust, with the postholder expected to take on the management of additional funded projects as they are awarded thereafter.

The postholder will also be responsible for the day-to-day financial management and administration of The National Archives’ inbound funding portfolio. They will produce internal and external financial reports, make decisions, and liaise with funders, internal project teams and The National Archives’ Finance department, in supporting the compliant and efficient management and delivery of our growing grant portfolio.

  • Grant Development
  • Grant Process and Project Delivery
