The National Jazz Archive is looking for volunteers

Our Content Provider The National Jazz Archive (UK) holds the UK’s finest collection of written and visual jazz-related material, along with an important collection of ‘oral history’ recordings.

The Archive is looking to grow its team of volunteers to assist with:

– Cataloguing

– Digitising

– Transcribing

– Preservation

– Website and digital media

– Exhibitions

– Running events

Knowledge of jazz is not a prerequisite for working with us. Volunteers will be available to attend the main Archive, based in Loughton, Essex. There is also a satellite Archive, based in the city centre campus of Birmingham City University. There are also opportunities to work remotely.

This is a great opportunity to develop and hone skills, either alone or working alongside others.

Applications by email to Angela Davies, the Archive volunteer organiser: adavies@nationaljazzarchive.org.uk. Please also cc: chair@nationaljazzarchive.org.uk
