The University of Essex currently offers one graduate traineeship in the Albert Sloman Library for anyone seeking experience in an information services environment. The successful candidate is given the opportunity to work in most of the main departments within the library: student engagement, collections and user services. The placement is ideal for those looking to gain a broad overview of how a busy university library operates.

      This blog is managed by the current graduate trainee and will provide updates throughout the year on the library, the programme, the events they have participated in and the projects being managed. For further information please refer to Essex University’s Library website. Traineeships will be advertised on CILIP and on the university’s job vacancies page.
