The Archives of the World Bank Group is looking for an Appraisal Archivist to join its team.  The World Bank Group (WBG) is a multilateral international organization that works to eliminate extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity around the world.  Established in 1944 at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the WBG now comprises 189 member countries and has offices in over 130 countries including the headquarters in Washington, DC.  The WBG Archives has responsibilities for WBG records throughout the lifecycle, and we’re taking-on a larger role in the appraisal, selection and preservation of born-digital information.

We are a group of dedicated archivists and records managers that love challenges, enjoy using our knowledge of archival theory and practice in creative and new ways, and work collaboratively with staff across the WBG including IT.  In particular, we are looking for an archivist with knowledge and skill in functional analysis for the purpose of appraisal, but also for advisory service to the organization in the area of records management.

This is a two-year position with the possibility for extension and transition to open-ended employment.  Deadline for applications is May 3, 2019.  We’d love to hear from you!
