Opportunities to work at Gladstone’s Library
1st September – 19th December 2012
Gladstone’s Library is looking for three interns who will live and work at the Library from 1st September to 19th December 2012 as part of its residential community. The successful applicants should be graduates, preferably with an Arts or Theology/Religious Studies degree.
The interns will work four weekdays plus 1 half day at the weekend. They will also participate in the Evening Duty rota: 5-10pm (2 x weekday evenings), the Lunchtime Reception rota (2x weekday lunch) and staff Reception from 9am – 2pm on either Saturday or Sunday.
The successful applicants will live at Gladstone’s Library free of charge. All meals will be provided. They will be given a small travel and general expenses allowance of £100 per month.
Each intern will be assigned to a specific department. One of the posts will work alongside the Development and Marketing Officers and the other two interns will work alongside the Librarian undertaking a variety of tasks in the care, management and development of the collection.
These internships provide a rare opportunity to live and work in Britain’s only Prime Ministerial library. The post will suit graduates thinking of a career in the charitable sector, marketing, or librarianship.
Please send CV and a letter of application indicating which of the posts you are interested in to Peter Francis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 8th July.
