The National Jazz Archive holds the UK’s finest collection of written and visual jazz-related
material, along with an important collection of ‘oral history’ recordings. Our website is a window
into our work and the vibrant world we celebrate: www.nationaljazzarchive.org.uk
The Archive is looking to grow its friendly and enthusiastic team of volunteers to assist with:
• Website and social media
• Running events
The Archive collections, dating back over 100 years, document this ever-evolving musical
phenomenon. They also tell the story of social and cultural development, including diversity and integration, fashion, dance, art and popular music. It is a fascinating resource of interest to far more than just jazz fans.
Aside from working within the main Archive, based in Loughton, Essex, there are also opportunities to work remotely.
- To be able to communicate effectively
- Experience of using Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel and Outlook
- The ability to work equally well in a team and unsupervised
- An interest in, knowledge of or willingness to learn about the history of jazz and the NJA collections
Knowledge of jazz is not a prerequisite for working with us.
A degree of training and supervision is provided. This is a great opportunity to develop and hone skills, either alone or working alongside others.
