Masterplan Project Archive goes public / by Martin Toft

As part of the Masterplan Project we are interested in establishing an archive where Jersey residents and workers from a variety of professions within the financial services industry can share images, experiences and memories that reflect on working practices across all sectors: banking, wealth management, trusts, funds, corporate, fiduciary, investment, estates management, legal, compliance, regulatory, accountancy, insurance, philanthropy, digital and marketing.

We are interested in looking at any imagery that may exist internally in company records, public archives and private collections showing office work, business environments, employee/staff portraits, working practices, boardroom meetings, business trips, corporate events and CSR activities, or images used in corporate literature and marketing material.

Additionally, we are looking for volunteers with experience of working within the industry either at present, or in the past who are willing to be interviewed about their job and work. This will be an informal conversation arranged at a mutually convenient time at the Société Jersiaise Photographic Archive. All recorded material will be confidential/anonymized where requested and establish an internal audio archive that will act as research to inform further project development. Volunteers are also needed in the future to act as models for the production of new photographic work that involves portraiture on location.

How you can get involved: Images and video can be uploaded to our Masterplan Project Facebook group ( or you can submit photographs either by email to or visit the Société Jersiaise Photographic Archive at 7 Pier Road, St Helier with prints or other relevant visual material.
