Core purpose of the role:

Mange the implementation of new Digital Asset Management System (DAMS) for YSP and associated data migration.

YSP received funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, as part of its Digital Accelerator programme, to select and implement a new Digital Asset Management System (DAMS). The project kicked off in July 2022 and will end in 2024. The Project Team now require support to manage further research into a suitable DAMS, and its implementation and associated data migration. We estimate a total of 7GB of data (primarily image and video) to cleanse, migrate, improve metadata and filing. This project forms part of wider digital transformation at YSP and is integral to a long-term goal to make collections and archive material accessible to the public online.

Details:

Working closely with the Project Manager and Project Team, the Systems Implementation Manager will plan and coordinate activities required for the successful implementation of a new DAMS for YSP, as well as support the delivery of related data migration.

The successful candidate will need to be able to communicate effectively with staff across YSP, to ensure that all relevant functional areas (e.g. curatorial, digital, learning, marketing) are informed and engaged in the delivery of this project across all phases, such as specification interpretation, data migration, configuration, user acceptance testing, training – to enable an effective and smooth transition.

The post holder will provide regular updates to the core Project Team, comprising the Project Sponsor (Deputy Director), Project Manager (Head of Marketing, PR and Digital), Senior Curator, Collections and Production Manager, IT support, and wider stakeholder groups.

The role is central to the final stage delivery of YSP’s Bloomberg Digital Accelerator Project, which will transform the organisation’s management and publication of digital assets.
