Graduate Trainee Programme 2011-2014

The Archives & Special Collections Graduate Trainee programme ran 2011-2014.  Although we are no longer able to provide this opportunity, the following resources may be useful for those interested in a career in Archives or Information Management.

Our Graduate Traineeship

Our Trainees were primarily responsible for answering enquiries and supervising readers and also undertook cataloguing and research projects, outreach and promotional tasks and shadowed the Archivist and Special Collections Officer wherever possible. Such experience is an essential requirement of the professional Archive courses such as those run by University College LondonUniversity of Liverpool, and University of Dundee.

More information about our trainees and the day to day tasks they undertook is available on our Meet our Trainees page.

Further advice for those interested in pursuing a career in archives and records management is also available from the Archives and Records Association.
