EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Bushfire Recovery Project (BRP) - Various Positions Open

THE BUSHFIRE RECOVERY PROJECT (BRP)

The BRP will involve transporting and establishing temporary digitisation and conservation assessment studios in bushfire affected regions of Victoria. There will be an opportunity for collection and personal items to be digitised by local digitising officers, offering employment to the local community. The studios will assist in community rebuilding, skills development, local capacity building, memorialisation, and remembrance.

Local community organisations and residents within the regions will be invited to bring their precious material to be digitised and preserved. The aim of this project is to help future proof collections by reminding organisations and individuals of the importance of digitising and documenting items important to them.

The BRP will operate from three regional hubs positioned within the Alpine Shire Council, the East Gippsland Shire Council, and the Towong Shire Council regions. Each hub will have a Regional Coordinator (RC) and a Regional Digitisation Officer (RDO) assigned to them. 

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and assessed upon receipt. The final date for application is 11.59pm 25 April 2022, unless the position is filled prior to this date.

This project is part of the Victorian State Government Regional Business and Economy Recovery Plan and funded under the Local Economic Recovery (LER) Regional Economic Program. The BRP is managed by Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) Victoria and supported by Creative Victoria.
