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 underway and eight more 15-month traineeships will start in October 2019. Recruitment for these posts will open in Spring 2019.
Applications are currently open to UK archives to apply to host a trainee. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
