Simon Fraser University Archives and Records Management Department invites applications from innovative, enthusiastic and service-oriented candidates for the position of Records Management Archivist. Reporting to the University Archivist and based at the Burnaby campus, this full-time continuing position will be primarily responsible for advancing the continued development, implementation, and maintenance of an effective and integrated records management program that meets the University’s current and future records and information management needs. This includes the research, development, implementation, and promotion of records schedules, classification strategies, and policies and procedures that ensure alignment of the University’s record- keeping systems and technologies with professional current standards, legislation and archival considerations.

Special emphasis will be placed on developing and expanding the current records management program to address the changing information and records management needs of the University, including the transition from paper to digital record-keeping. The incumbent will also support the long-term storage, preservation and accessibility of digital information through the design and implementation of robust digital record-keeping, preservation and access systems and processes.

SFU Archives and Records Management is responsible for the administration of three corporate programs – archives, records management, and freedom of information and protection of privacy. The successful candidate will work as a collaborative member of a team of information management professionals and will be expected to participate in the overall operations of the Department, including the delivery of archival reference services. Demonstrated experience in one or more of these program areas is an asset and is in keeping with the Department’s philosophy that its program areas are tied together by the concept of the record as a vital institutional asset that adds value to the university when managed effectively, but exposes the university to increased costs, risks, and liabilities when managed poorly.
