He previously worked as an archivist for the Corporation of the City of London, for St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, and for the Royal College of Physicians. He has also worked as a freelance archivist and records manager, and as a consultant to the International Records Management Trust, participating in records management and educational projects in The Gambia, Ghana, Botswana and Uganda, and contributing educational materials for use in developing countries throughout the Commonwealth.
From 2002 to 2005 he was Programme Director for the MA/Diploma/Certificate in Archives and Records Management, and the MA/Diploma/Certificate in Records and Archives Management (International), at UCL's School of Library, Archive and Information Studies (now the Department of Information Studies).

He has also acted as co-ordinator of UCL's contribution to e-TERM, a European project to design a trans-national vocational training course in electronic records management, and as a senior research fellow on the LEADERS project which developed a demonstrator system and toolkit to bring together Encoded Archival Description (EAD) with encoded transcripts and images of archival documents. His other research interests include the nature of records and recordkeeping; records classification, arrangement and description; and relationships between records and the actions of individuals and organisations.
He serves on the editorial board of the Journal of the Society of Archivists, is the editor of the series of professional texts Principles and Practice in Records Management and Archives, and co-author (with Elizabeth Shepherd) of Managing Records: a handbook of principles and practice (Facet, London, 2003).
