Play a part in maintaining the future of an historic craft

The Royal Collection Trust have a vacancy for an Apprentice Journeyman Bookbinder – closing date 12th June 2019.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Royal Library and Royal Archives, which hold a substantial collection of books, manuscripts and archives of international significance.

The book conservation-restoration team works to preserve this important collection as well as create new bindings for the Royal Household, maintaining the very highest standards of bookbinding craftsmanship.

Joining them for an apprenticeship means you will learn from the best. Their three-year advanced-level training programme (supported by the Society) will equip you with a developed understanding of the practical and commercial aspects of bookbinding.
