Help Wanted at Windsor Castle

Queen Elizabeth II is looking for a new hire to be trusted with “bringing centuries of history into the digital age”. The Royal Household has shared a new job advert for the position of Digitisation Technician.

A “help wanted” ad has been posted by the Royal Household of Queen Elizabeth II. The ideal candidate should be experienced at archival work. I suspect some genealogists in England may be very interested in this position.

The new hire would join a team of experts at the Queen’s Berkshire home to work between February 2022 and March 2023.

During this time, the perfect candidate will tackle the challenge to “digitise material held by the Royal Archives and the Royal Collection, producing valuable content for high profile public access.”

The job specification read: “You’ll capture and produce high quality images of documentary items, before transferring them to permanent storage.

The help wanted advert warns, “However, it warned the “deadlines and standard of work” will be testing.”
