Brief job description/person specification:

Applications are now open for eight 15-month technical traineeships starting in October 2019 – hosted by partner archives in London and Yorkshire.

Bridging the Digital Gap is a programme which aims to increase digital skills in archives, bringing new talent into the sector to create a more diverse and inclusive workforce. The traineeship is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

We are looking for talented technical people to join the archive and heritage sectors and use their skills, energy and digital confidence to help us preserve our history and find new ways for people to access and learn from that heritage. 

This traineeship will help you gain the skills needed to keep the past alive for future generations. 
Trainees will spend 15 months working on real-life projects, learning on the job and gaining valuable and rewarding work experience. You will also have access to specialist training and development, consisting of a structured e-learning programme and dynamic face-to-face workshops. 

Throughout the traineeship, you will have the chance to work together with other trainees and colleagues to develop key skills that will prepare you for an exciting career in the heritage sector. You will also work towards a recognised certificate issued by the ARA (the Archives & Records Association), the professional body for archives.
