What can we offer you?

The Bodleian Libraries is a unique organisation. By training with us you will gain knowledge and experience of working with expert staff and collections of outstanding breadth and depth, in an historic setting.

Salary & benefits

Your starting salary will be at grade 2.2 of the University's salary scale, or £18,009 p.a. at Oct 2019. This will be raised by one salary grade point annually. We will also cover the fees for your postgraduate Diploma from Aberystwyth University. Should you wish to do so, it is possible to convert your postgraduate Diploma to a Master's level qualification by completing a dissertation; please note that this requires payment of a fee to Aberystwyth University, for which the trainee is solely responsible.

You will have the benefits of all University of Oxford employees available to you. These include a paid annual leave allowance of 38 days per year (inclusive of all public holidays and library closed days).
