Want to be a paid arts intern? Get a move on!


Four arts intern places – which each offer an equivalent salary in the £15,000s and a chance to work with an arts organisation in the UK and in the Netherlands – are on offer from co.lab, but you’ll need to get a move on – the closing date is Monday, September 20 at noon.

The role, says co.lab, is aimed at an analytical graduate, with the creativity, self-management and interpersonal skills to slot into a busy and hardworking team. The successful applicant will enhance his/her social networking, and marketing and research skills, helping inform and deliver communications strategies and extended networking opportunities for the partner organisations.

They are looking for people who graduated in 2008 or 2009 and who want to develop marketing skills in the creative and cultural sector.

Successful applicants will spend a supported period of time with a UK company with the option to include a four-week placement in the Netherlands where they will work for both the host company and the UK partner – and you’ll be supported by a dedicated mentor and a virtual network.

All the usual skills are required (social networking, time management, team player/work independently, etc), so we reckon you’ll have to wow on your application and in the interviews, which take place in Exeter on the week starting September 27.
