Do you have excellent communication and organisational skills, experience of working within British-Vietnamese communities and a passion for preserving and sharing heritage? Then this part-time post may be for you. Hackney Archives are excited to be coordinating the rescue of a unique archival collection documenting the history of Vietnamese communities in Britain.
The An Viet Foundation Archive (1981-2017) is perhaps the largest collection reflecting the British-Vietnamese experience. Working in partnership with Hackney Chinese Community Services, the current custodians of the An Viet Foundation Archive, we are committed to finding a permanent home for the collection through active collaboration and partnership-working with community stakeholders and the UK’s higher education/research communities.
This role will help to coordinate the many stakeholders, organise meetings, ensure workflows are completed on time to support the project within the context of a busy service team.
This post is funded by the Government’s Covid-19 archives at risk grant, administered by The National Archives, with a contract length of 10 months.
Based at Hackney Archives in London’s E8, it is within easy reach with multiple TfL bus routes off the Kingsland Road and London Overground lines (Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland) and just 15 minutes walk from Hackney Central.
The recruitment process is anonymous. Therefore, we do not accept supporting statements or CVs.

Hackney Council is also working towards a vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.
Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
The Council has a dedicated employment support service (Hackney Works), which offers Hackney residents guidance in relation to applying for jobs. If you are thinking about applying for a job, please contact the Hackney Works team to find out what support is available: email@example.com
