They are the government’s archives for the UK and hold thousands of years of national records. Building on their award-winning experience in digital preservation, they have developed a new Digital Records Infrastructure System to acquire, store and preserve their rapidly expanding digital collections. The culture is quite different to some of the capitals technology start-ups, the team is around 10 in size, focus on best practices but also have a relaxed informal environment where you would likely avoid some of the long hours associated with start-ups and banks. Situated in a picturesque location with great travel links in West London, there’s a lot of flexibility around their core working hours and a 35 hour working week.
