Internships

The internship programme is designed to attract the best potential talent and help create the next generation of careers within our sector.

An internship at Waddesdon allows participation in some of the most exciting work in a nationally and internationally renowned institution. This in turn gives interns a number of formal and informal learning opportunities that assist the recipients with their future careers. Our aim is to ensure we open the doors of Waddesdon as widely as possible to the curators, conservators, archivists, gardeners, facilities managers, stewards, event organisers and leaders we may need in the future.

Applications are open for our next internships running from January to May 2020. Deadline for applications 11pm, Sunday 17 November.
