I am nearing the end of my first term as Tyger Clerk of the Signet. Since I do not plan on requesting a second term, I am now accepting applications for the position. The applications are due by November 30th. At that time the King and Queen will chose my successor after consulting with the Kingdom Seneschal and me. My term ends at Kingdom 12th Night, and at that time if a successor is chosen they will step into the role.
According to Kingdom law the Tyger Clerk of the Signet:
- Coordinates the production of scrolls requested by The Crown.
- Promotes the development of calligraphers and illuminators in the East Kingdom and warrants said scribes to perform Signet Office work.
- Maintains accurate records of scroll assignments.
Therefore you will need to interact with a large number of scribes of differing backgrounds and skill levels. After receiving recommendations, usually from a scheduler appointed by the King and queen, you will write out an assignment and find an appropriate scribe to do the work. Currently the East Kingdom has 103 active scribes. Therefore interpersonal skills are a must.
The Signet also keeps accurate records of all assignments and backlogs. Multiple databases are used to keep the records straight and the ability to use excel, google drive, sheets and docs is needed. You will be expected to keep dockets for the reign, each individual event, backlogs, and past assignments.
Finally, the Signet should promote learning and enjoyment of the scribal arts with the Scribal Tea at Pennsic, Scholas, Competitions, class tracks and displays among other events.
Please send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30. Thank you for your attention.
