Faith, Slavery and Identity Programme Internship
Fixed-term for 6 months, 24 hours per week
£6.08 per hour
To mark the importance of the Ayuba Suleiman Diallo loan to the National Portrait Gallery and opportunity for public access we are creating a programme of participation activity in London (October 2011-December 2011) and across the country with three regional partners. The Programme Intern will help document, evaluate and share the experience of programme, audience response and participation at the Gallery and work with colleagues to share the outcomes to inform the regional programme of activity. We are seeking to appoint an individual for whom this opportunity would provide an important starting point in building and developing skills and expertise in research, engagement and participation practice in the cultural sector.
As with all paid internship positions we encourage applications from recent graduates including those in receipt of Maintenance/Special Support Grant/Hardship Fund.
Full details of this and all other employment opportunities at the Gallery can be viewed at our website www.npg.org.uk/jobs or requested by e-mailing:firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date for applications is 9.00am on Monday, 31 October 2011.
The Gallery is committed to equality and is a member of the Employers’ Forum on Disability, Race for Opportunity and the Equality Exchange.
