We are looking for a passionate and sociable Associate Producer, Public Programs who is interested in joining a leading NSW Government agency focused on creating a living future for the past so that our visitors can experience Sydney’s past as if they had lived it themselves.

What we do
Sydney Living Museums (SLM) and The State Archives and Records Authority of NSW (SARA) came under the direction of a single Executive Director on 1 July 2019. Whilst maintaining two separate legal entities, services are provided under a shared model.

SLM is a leading government agency in Australia with responsibility for conserving, managing, interpreting, and activating places and sites of local, national, and international significance. Established in 1980, our collection includes the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks, The Mint, Australia’s oldest surviving government building through to the twentieth century Rose Seidler House, which marks the arrival of the modernist movement to Australia. The collection is unlike other museums in that the significance of each is in the whole, and not just in the parts. The awareness of place frames each narrative.

Our audiences are local, regional, national and international. Sydney Living Museums is a state cultural institution, reporting to the Minister for the Arts.

SARA is responsible for developing, preserving, and promoting access to the State Archives Collection that pre-dates the European settlement of Australia in 1788. SARA has three primary business functions:

  1. SARA is the custodian and advocate for the State Archives Collection, which is one of the most complete and important collections documenting colonisation in the world. This vast cultural collection of more than 13 million items, valued at $1 billion and which grows each year, details the development of this place and the wielding of colonial power, with multiple series of documents now included as inscriptions on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
  2. The Recordkeeping Standards and Advice function assists public offices to meet their recordkeeping obligations under the State Records Act 1998, as a vital part of preserving the memory of government for current and future generations.
  3. Commercial Operations, through the Government Records Repository, has substantial capability to provide commercial storage, records management, digitisation, and consultancy services and generates the majority of SARA’s operating revenue.

What you’ll do with us
This role supports the customer-focused operations of the public programs to fulfill a range of administrative duties while providing excellent customer service to a range of key stakeholders.

This role will initially be focussed on supporting the delivery of Sydney Open. Sydney Open a major public program to be held on 5, 6, and 7 November 2021 and enables ticket-holders to go behind the scenes of our city and access contemporary and historic architectural gems, many of which are usually off-limits to the public.
