In July 2007, LLUK initiated a primary data collection project, funded by the MLA, in order to collect relevant information on the archives and records management workforce in England. The research provides information that will enable LLUK to help develop the workforce in the sector. It will also supplement employer intelligence on skills needs in providing suitable recommendations on how skills requirements can be most appropriately met within the archives sector in the future.
This report provides key results from the England Archives Workforce Survey 2007. It includes the following sections:
· paid and voluntary staff
· mode of employment
· occupation type and level
This is the first in a series of four reports. The other three reports provide profiling information about the archives and records management staff working in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales respectively.
