A Day in the Life
As a Records Management Consultant I work in a project management and advisory role. Organisations of all sizes and types ask me to provide them with services and advice based on my knowledge and experience. A typical day could see me writing a business case to employ more resources, or purchase a multi-million dollar solution, you could find me implementing a new electronic document and records management system (EDRMS) into a company, writing their classification system, providing staff training, writing policies and procedures or a disaster plan, or even sorting through and appraising 50 years worth of stored files. If I preferred I could specialise into one area of expertise but at the moment I like that it is such a diverse and challenging role.
Training and Further Study
On the job experience (5-10 years) and knowledge equal to a minimum of a Bachelor degree in an Information or Records discipline or Graduate Certificate in Records/Information Management .
