It's developing your knowledge, and helping present magnificent art

It's learning and contributing at the same time. And it's caring for one of the world's greatest collections. This is what makes an internship with Royal Collection Trust so different.

Our Prints and Drawings team are responsible for an unparalleled collection of over 150,000 drawings, watercolours and prints, dating from 1450 to the present day.

You'll gain first-hand experience in a wide range of curatorial activities, including researching the works of art, assisting with their presentation through a range of media, and helping to display works of art within the galleries and royal residences.

You'll develop an understanding of our curatorial management systems and have the opportunity to gain an insight into a specific area of curatorial responsibility through individual project work.

You'll also assist in the administration of loans and exhibitions and help with the cataloguing of new additions to our outstanding collection.

With the chance to benefit from the expertise of Curators within our Prints and Drawings team, you’ll be able to enhance your skills in an exciting environment where development and training is encouraged.

With a keen interest in curatorial work, and European and Art history, you're exactly who we're looking for.

With confident written and verbal communication skills, you're able to work effectively both independently and as part of a team.

What's more, as a natural organiser with lots of initiative, you have good IT skills and your attention to detail is second to none.

Above all, you're eager to immerse yourself in the unique learning opportunities that the Collection presents.

This is a fantastic opportunity to use your passion and enthusiasm to develop new skills and take the next step in your career.
