Welcome to University of Oxford Libraries' Graduate Trainee web pages
These pages provide information on the posts available, the application process for the trainee placements starting in September 2013 and details of the current training programme. The Oxford Trainees Blog provides an insider's view of being a trainee at Oxford and further information about the trainee scheme.
We are operating a central recruitment exercise this year. If you apply to the Bodleian Libraries' Trainee Scheme, your application will be considered for all of the potential placements and our central selection panel will allocate you to the most appropriate placement based upon your background, experience and interests. Wherever you end up working as a Trainee, you are guaranteed a solid grounding in core library activities and an excellent start to your career in the library and information profession.
The Library Graduate Trainee scheme offers up to 12* placements each year within the Bodleian Libraries in one of our three subject areas: Humanities, Science and Social Sciences. We have an established staff development programme for graduate trainees (following the SCONUL Code of Practice) in which each appointee would be expected to participate. There are opportunities to attend other relevant staff development activities where appropriate. The trainee posts are open to graduates of any age who intend to undertake a postgraduate library/information course in order to pursue career in Librarianship / Information Management.
