The Library wishes to appoint an enthusiastic and hard-working Graduate Trainee for 2017-18. The post offers an ideal opportunity to gain a wide range of experience in a busy academic library before embarking on a career in library and information work. Candidates should have or expect to be awarded a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification.

Purpose of the job: To provide assistance in the College Library with a range of day-to-day operational tasks and to assist with designated library projects. This training post is designed to equip the post-holder with a wide range of practical library experience prior to the attainment of a formal academic Library and Information qualification.
