Graduate Traineeship at Snape Maltings

A 9-month traineeship is offered by the Britten-Pears Foundation. Visit the website to find out more. Here's a brief outline to get you interested:-
HLF Graduate Trainee £14,000 for 9 months full-time, fixed term contract (£18,667 pro rata) With possibility of extension subject to funding The Britten–Pears Foundation, based in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, is a Designated collection holding the archives of composer Benjamin Britten. Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have initiated an exciting project based around Britten’s centenary celebrations in 2013. The role of this new HLF Graduate Trainee post is to support the front line work of the current archive/library staff. The post will include overseeing our Reading Room and dealing with enquiries from researchers, as well as project work in preservation and description of our collections. 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. Training from our qualified Archivists and Librarian in the use of CALM, the archive management system, and Liberty3, the Library cataloguing system, and of the many aspects of work in a specialist music archive and research library will be provided. The successful applicant will be motivated and happy to work on their own initiative, confident in dealing with the public, have strong communication and time management skills and be committed to archives or librarianship as a career. An interest in twentieth-century music would also be an advantage.
