Digitisation Technician Trainee

  • Organisation:IWM Duxford
  • Location:Duxford, Cambridgeshire
  • Salary:£20,940 per annum
  • Contract type:Contract

he Digitisation trainee will learn how to work with the time-based media within our collections. Specifically, film, video and sound. These come in a variety of types, formats and materials and are some of the most fragile objects in our care.

The digitisation team converts our analogue collections to enable them to be accessed (for example through collections search) and preserved digitally. The team includes technicians, contract or fee paid staff and volunteers and, in addition, work is also contracted out to third-party suppliers. In all instances the team deliver to internal customers who then connect content with our audiences.

The digitisation team is grouped by why (access or preservation) we digitise the collection and the type of collections that we work to digitise (still or time-based media).
