Do you enjoy bringing order out of chaos? Are you interested in twentieth century history? Are you thinking of pursuing a career in archives?

Churchill Archives centre offers volunteer placements for those aged over 18 and interested in a career in archives. Placements are of one week's duration (or a half-day or day per week over five weeks) and usually involve the following elements:

We can offer a free lunch in Hall each day and travel expenses up to a maximum of £25 per week (or £25 per month if working a half-day or day per week over five weeks). Unfortunately, we cannot offer accommodation, so volunteers must live within commuting distance of Cambridge.


If you would like to find out more, please e-mail us - attaching a copy of your CV, and marking your email for the attention of Sophie Bridges. We ask all potential volunteers to come in for a brief tour of the Archives Centre, so they can see the working environment and discuss the placement further.
