Voluntary internships

Parasol unit is accepting applications for the January – April 2020 Internship.

Interviews will be conducted on 10 and 11 December. Ideally our next intern will work Tuesday – Thursday or Wednesday – Friday.

In line with the foundation’s educational mission, we encourage high-calibre applicants preferably working towards or recently graduated with a master’s degree, and who are able to commit to volunteering three days of their time per week. In return, the charity provides a small stipend to aid with lunch and transportation costs.

Voluntary internships at Parasol unit are an excellent way to gain experience and help with the “behind-the-scenes” administration of a not-for-profit contemporary art gallery and educational charity. This is an integrated role within the foundation by which we support learning and professional development. All voluntary internships will include exposure to and working closely with staff across all departments.

To apply, please download and complete the application form at the bottom of this page and send it along with a PDF of your CV to opportunities@parasol-unit.org.

Submission deadline is 2 December 2019.

Polite notice: thank you for understanding that due to the high number of applications we receive, only successful applicants will receive a response.
