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 digital approaches are needed to help preserve them for the future.
'Bridging the Digital Gap' is a Heritage Lottery funded training programme which will create 24 paid technical trainees in archives around the UK, bringing new skills into the sector. The first traineeships are already underway.
Applications are now open for eight more 15-month traineeships starting in October 2019. These posts will be hosted by partner archives in London and Yorkshire.
