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 interested in a career in archives. Placements are of one week's duration (or a half-day or day per week over a longer period) 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 a longer period). 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.
