Bridging the Digital Gap: technical traineeships in archives

Do you enjoy using digital technology?

Are you looking for a challenging, IT-focused training and development opportunity?

With the right support, could you become confident and skilled in all aspects of preserving our digital past?

There has never been a more exciting time for people with technical skills to join the archives sector. The archives of today are on hard drives, not paper. New technical approaches are needed to help preserve them for the future.

Bridging the Digital Gap is a new Heritage Lottery funded training programme aimed at bringing people with digital aptitude into the archive sector. We are looking for talented technical people – with A-levels or equivalent – to fill eight 15-month paid traineeships at host archives in London, Norwich, Hull and York.

Are you genuinely passionate about all things digital and willing to learn more? If so, you could help us in our mission to preserve history for the future.
