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 15-month traineeships are already underway.
The next eight traineeships will be hosted by partner archives in London and Yorkshire and will start in October 2019. Applications for these posts are now closed.
