Job description

The legal department is one of ten national departments within the Swedish Police Agency. At the legal department’s office and the seven regional legal units, approximately 700 employees work with responsibility for a number of important functions in law, administrative law and archives and registry. The legal department’s mission is to be the guarantor of legal certainty in the authority, to create conditions for order and security in society and to secure the authority’s information management.

The information management unit is responsible for managing, developing and following up the activities within registry, archive matters and e-services. The advertised position is assigned to Information Management 1 at Law Section West, located in Gothenburg. Today, 2 archivists, 3 archive managers, 2 confidentiality managers, a management support and a group manager work in the group. The archives largely consist of criminal cases from the police’s criminal investigation activities from 1965 onwards, but also a large number of administrative cases and other administrative documents are stored in our archives.

You will come to a workplace where digital working methods and IT-based work are a natural part of everyday life. The police authority applies employee-driven development work that aims to increase your participation and influence as an employee. As an archive administrator, you will have the opportunity to work in an exciting authority in an important function where commitment, efficiency and a sense of service are fundamental.

Job description

The tasks are mainly order and list work. There may also be other customary archive information such as e.g. sorting in and out of documents, carrying out relocations of archive documents and carrying out prescribed thinning.


This is an opportunity for you who have:

  • high school education
  • current experience of working with archives in public administration
  • good computer skills and ability to familiarize yourself with new systems
  • good ability to express yourself verbally and in writing in Swedish

The position requires Swedish citizenship.

We see it as meritorious if, in addition to the above, you also have:

  • education in archival science/archival and information science
  • experience in organizing and indexing archives
  • experience working in archival cataloging software
  • experience in administrative law proceedings

Personal characteristics

Since it is largely independent work, we see that you are a responsible, structured and meticulous person. You are part of a team of other archive managers and archivists, which requires good collaboration skills. You must be able to perform some physically demanding work, such as lifting archive boxes. You are also keen to provide good service to those who request documents from the archive.

We attach great importance to personal suitability.
