Benjamin is currently working as a Cataloguing Archivist at Sheffield Archives. The project is to catalogue South Yorkshire Police records relating to the Miners’ Dispute 1984 – 1985. Previously he has worked as the Collections Officer at Northamptonshire Archives and before that as the Senior Archive Assistant at Sheffield Archives. He qualified as an archivist in 2014 after completing the distance learning course with Aberystwyth University.
He enjoys living in Derbyshire, walking and reading. He also struggles to remind himself that The Archers and Game of Thrones are fictional (which he also realises is a strange combination).
Jenny is Keeper (Access and Information) at the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland. She joined the office in 2008 and has held public services posts in the Northamptonshire Record Office and Nottinghamshire Archives and has recently started a distance learning course in information rights.
She is a keen follower of the MotoGP (bike racing) and enjoys swimming, painting and drinking cocktails.
A Derbyshire girl, Becky has worked at the county’s record office since 2008, and as an Archivist since 2009. Having previously worked in the security industry, she is much more at home surrounded by historical archives and eccentric researchers. Away from work, Becky enjoys going to the cinema, reading “historical” novels, baking and eating.
Although a 'West Midlandser' by birth, Sarah has lived in Nottingham since starting at university there in 1994. After several years of running a business designing and manufacturing space-inspired clothing, she returned to the University of Nottingham to volunteer as an archives assistant. She qualified as an archivist in 2010 after studying via distance learning, and has finally been made a permanent member of staff at Manuscripts and Special Collections. She still likes futuristic fashion but doesn't get out much any more.
