The ICA Education Department is currently looking to recruit a hard working and motivated intern for a three-month period to start immediately for 2 days per week, subject to a two-week probationary period.
Working closely with the Director of Learning, this role is a great opportunity to become involved in the ICA’s ambitious education programme, working with schools, colleges, communities and families in a ‘hands on’ capacity. Duties will include updating project information, maintaining databases and coordinating mailings, as well as supporting group visits. There may be some evening and weekend work involved, but time is given off in lieu.

They should possess computer literacy (knowledge of Word, Excel, Outlook and Powerpoint), an excellent telephone manner and work well both in a team and autonomously. A committed interest in gallery education and excellent spoken and written English skills are essential.
Internships are offered on a voluntary basis, however all travel expenses between zones 1-4 are reimbursed and ICA staff benefits are provided.
