What does a Records Officer do?

A Records Officer looks after the stored information of a business or organisation. You’ll ensure record management systems are well managed and make sure access procedures are adhered to. You might have to retrieve information when needed or dispose of information after storage requirements are met. Most current record systems will be digital, but you might also manage paper or photo systems.

Records Officers need to be highly organised and good at sticking to official procedures. You’ll need a keen eye for detail and will have to manage several information requests at any one time. You’ll work with people in all levels of your organisation and will have to be able to attend to information requests quickly. Records Officers need to understand current records legislation and how it affects the record management system in place at their organisation.
