A great opportunity has arisen to join the Business Support Records Management Team in Children’s Services. 

The team is responsible for the storage and management of the archived social care records for children and families -  in total, over 40,000 files dating back to the 1950s. The team works closely with services in social care to retrieve files for social workers who require access to children and family records, as well as the Access to Records Service who manage requests from members of the public who have been involved with Children’s Services when they were children themselves and want access to their personal records.

The role of Administrator is responsible for storing and monitoring the files, ensuring they are kept safe and secure, and can be accessed when required by the service.  This is a crucial role for the service as we work to statutory timescales to provide the public with access to their records. In this role, teamwork and flexibility is essential. The skills required for this post are:

  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Ability to lift and pack files into boxes/remove from shelves
  • Knowledge of LCS database/similar databases
  • Experience of working in Social Care
