The University of Essex currently offers three graduate traineeships in the Albert Sloman Library for those seeking experience in an information services environment. Successful candidates are 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 trainees and will provide updates throughout the year on the library, the programme, the events 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.
