It's being in the perfect place to learn how to care for and curate a world-class collection

It's being encouraged to gain new skills. And it's the opportunity to develop your knowledge of one of the world's most impressive art collections. This is what makes an internship with Royal Collection Trust so different. 

The Royal Library is responsible for over 200,000 items, including some of the finest and most important books and manuscripts in the world.  

As part of the Royal Library curatorial team, you'll gain first-hand experience in a wide range of curatorial activities, including researching the collections, assisting with their presentation through a range of media, and helping to display books and manuscripts 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. For this, you'll work particularly closely with our outstanding collection of fine and historic bindings. 

You'll also assist in the administration of loans and exhibitions and help with the cataloguing of additions to the Library.  

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

With an interest in librarianship and British history, you're exactly who we're looking for.

A confident communicator with excellent written and verbal communication skills, you are 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 for you to use your passion for history and your enthusiastic approach to develop new skills to take the next step in your career.
