The National Archives is a vital cornerstone of our constitutional democracy, collecting and securing the future of the Government record – from Shakespeare’s will to tweets from Downing Street – and preserving it for generations to come.

As the living, growing home of our national story, The National Archives is a special and unique part of government. We are the guardians of over 1,000 years of iconic national documents; expert advisers in information and records management; and a thriving cultural, academic and heritage institution. Make history. Become a part of it.

Reporting directly to the Director for Government & Information Rights, as the Head of Government Services, Strategy & Engagement you will provide The National Archives’ key strategic link in to Whitehall and the wider public sector.

The National Archives is staffed by some of the most knowledgeable, committed and friendly people you’re ever likely to work with and, as an active member of our Senior Leadership Team, you will also be instrumental in helping us to realise our new strategic vision: Archives for Everyone 2019-23.

This is an entirely new role and you will have the opportunity and autonomy to shape it. Experience is useful, but the quality and clarity of your thought and approach will matter more.

Join us here in beautiful Kew, just 10 minutes’ walk from the Overground and Underground stations, and you can expect an excellent range of benefits. They include a pension and flexible working, as well as discounts with local businesses (e.g. beauty salons and bars). We also offer wellbeing resources (e.g. on-site therapists) and have an on-site gym, restaurant, shop and staff bar.
