Can I apply if I already have a degree in librarianship or similar?

No. The trainee posts are suitable for those who already have an undergraduate degree and are interested in gaining a year's experience in one of our libraries to prepare themselves for possibly undertaking a postgraduate degree in librarianship or information and library studies.

Does it matter if I already have some experience of working in libraries?

No. A bit of time working in a library, such as a volunteering role or a summer job at your university library is useful experience to draw on when applying. If you have had several years though in a library role, you may want to consider whether this is already enough experience to enable you to enrol for a Masters degree.
