The Britten–Pears Foundation is looking to appoint an Archive Trainee with a passion for archives and collections to support the front line work of the current archive and library staff. The post will include overseeing our Reading Room and dealing with enquiries from researchers, as well as project work in preservation, digitisation and description of our collections and working with our volunteers. During the Foundation’s open season, from March onwards, the post-holder will work Tuesday – Saturday, overseeing the archive on Saturday and acting as the point of contact for members of the public who may visit.

This fixed term post would ideally suit a graduate wishing to gain work experience before applying for a postgraduate qualification in either Archives and Records Management or Library and Information Management. An interest in twentieth-century music would also be an advantage.
