Access & Inclusion Intern

Want to work for the UK’s most prestigious museums? If you’re interested in widening participation in the arts, then this internship might be for you…

Tate aims to be the most artistically adventurous and culturally inclusive global art museum. They deliver this aim through activities in their four galleries across the UK (Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Britain and Tate Modern), their digital platforms and collaborations with their national and international partners. At the heart of Tate is their collection of art, which includes British art from the 16th century to the present day, and international modern art from 1900 to the present day.

The team at Tate are on the hunt for an Access & Inclusion intern to join their team. This part-time 3-month internship is a brilliant opportunity to gain experience at one of the UK’s most iconic art institutions. Tate’s internship programme aims to offer structured work-based learning opportunities to support career development and to open up opportunities for working in the arts sector. Previous experience of working in a museum or gallery is not a requirement to undertake an internship at Tate. Their aim is to attract people to join them as interns who might not have thought about working in the sector before or who have not had the opportunity to experience what this might be like. They want to offer these opportunities to those people who would benefit most from an internship at Tate both in terms of furthering their personal or professional development and who, in return, would have a new and different perspective to bring to our work.

The Human Resources department looks after all people and employment issues at Tate. This internship will specifically work to support the objectives found in their Diversity and Inclusion strategy, ‘Tate for All’. They are currently looking for an intern to create a People Library at Tate. This will be a resource that tells the story of diversity at Tate and the barriers that some people face. During your internship you will have the opportunity to participate in an exciting organisation-wide project in a really stimulating environment. This will in turn give you many formal and informal learning opportunities that will assist you with your future career.
