We’re the RCN Library and Heritage Centre Graduate Trainees for 2016/17 and over the next few months we’ll be documenting our year working at the RCN. We’re both recent graduates, new to library work and keen to share our experiences, particularly with others considering a career in the sector. Feel free to get in touch via the comments section and we hope you enjoy reading about our shenanigans.
Hi, I’m Miriam and I’m the newest Graduate Trainee to join the team at the RCN Library and Heritage Centre. I studied English Literature at King’s College London and graduated in 2016. My role at the RCN is my first graduate job and I am keen to pursue a career working in libraries because of the varied nature of day-to-day work in a library and the opportunity to work for interesting and worthwhile organisations.
Hi, I’m Oliver and I started my role as a Graduate Trainee at the RCN Library and Heritage centre in April. I studied Classical Civilisation at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2015. I chose this role due to the variety that it offers, the chance to work for an organisation i truly believe, and to develop my skills in a sector I am truly passionate about.
