What you will be a part of
The Mills Archive Trust is one of a kind. Founded in 2002, we are the world’s only archive dedicated to preserving the history of milling. Using a lens like milling provides a unique and fascinating insight into a variety of historical events.
We tell the story of how milling has played a central role in humanity’s development, from our ancient origins and up to the present day. Mills are inseparable from humanity’s story – including the history of slavery and the changing roles of women – and yet are disappearing from our landscape at an alarming rate.
As an independent educational charity we generate all income ourselves. The Trust has raised and spent almost £2 million and grown to a team of 5 professionals. Assisted by 20 volunteers, we are custodians for 3 million images, documents and artefacts.
Our website attracts more than 80,000 people each year. Our digital catalogue of 100,000 images and documents has attracted global praise, providing a model for other archives. Our users include enthusiasts, historians, engineers, heritage bodies, academics, and local communities.
We punch above our weight as a small charity, as evidenced by our early success in achieving Accredited Archive Status from the National Archives and our 2019 acceptance of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
You will find a family feel here, many of us have grown into our roles and learned on the job, which provides us with the unrivalled opportunity to make our mark on the charity and gain a wide range of experience and knowledge. We offer opportunities for career advancement and an attractive working environment. There is also the opportunity to discuss some flexibility regarding home working.
We are at an exciting moment in the Trust’s development: now that we have saved so much important material, we want to build on this foundation to reach out and enthuse new audiences.

Making The Leap is a small and innovative societal change charity that aims to make a big difference. From direct delivery, to advocacy and leadership, we refuse to stay in our lane and believe passionately that those we exist to serve have the right to be anything they want to be. To say that this is an exciting time for the organisation would be an understatement, as our incredible funders, donors, partners and supporters have given us the chance to move to the next level, and have further influence and delivery nationally.
The shared soul of the organisation is to be passionate about helping young people from less-advantaged backgrounds; build up other charities and community groups and want to partner with them or support them; want to work with businesses and organisations to get things done; and care deeply about addressing racial inequity generally (and anti-Blackness in particular). The people here work hard, are good at what they do, and for so many it is ‘home’, with an average tenure of 11 years. It’s a nice environment to be in, friendly, flexible and one that gives you the reward of making a tangible difference in people’s lives – it’s great.
The organisation has a number of strands: core Making The Leap; the UK Social Mobility Awards; the Social Mobility Podcast and our brand new initiative Black Charity Leaders.
