Function description

The Expatriate Archive Centre (EAC) collects and preserves original source material documenting the social history of expatriate life. The Centre is based in The Hague and has a small, dedicated staff. We are supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers of different backgrounds, nationalities, and ages.

We are looking for a volunteer to work on one of the EAC's core collections as part of a team of three volunteers. This is one of our largest collections and it needs to be re-organised and registered in our archival system. This is a great opportunity to get involved in an interesting organisation that is home to so many expatriate stories.

The work consists of:
• Cataloguing organisational documents such as correspondences, publications, photos, and minutes of meetings;
• Creating new archival and content descriptions and checking existing ones for errors and completeness;
• Creating an arrangement system and reference codes;
• Scanning of the material.

• Interest in social history and the archiving thereof;
• Capability to structure and organise on a very detailed level;
• Fluency in English;
• Experience in Excel;
• Experience in archiving or records management is ideal;
• Enthusiasm and willingness to learn;
• Be able to volunteer a minimum of one day per week, preferably on Thursdays.

We offer:
• Training on the job;
• A professional work environment;
• The chance to enhance your computer, archiving, and management skills;
• A great volunteer team to work with;
• Unlimited chocolate;
• Superb lunch discussions!
