The results will be used to create our Family Tree website, which we are piloting in Newham……
The role will involve archival research, as well as working with community individuals, groups and businesses to promote the Family Tree and its aims, to help them write their stories and gather research for the family tree.
Ideally we would like you to commit 1 – 2 days a week for an initial period of three months. You will have great research skills and the ability to work on your own initiative. Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills including good spoken English. You should have great IT skills and be able to use Word, Excel, and email. Most importantly you should support the interests and aims of the organisation and have the ability to represent the organisation to diverse audiences.
