I have lots of news to share and will add a longer post soon. However I thought this may be of interest to some of you looking to develop a career in museums.
The MGS Internship programme (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Skills for the Future) will allow 20 highly-motivated graduates to join the museums sector as new entrants to learn core museum skills around Scotland. The internship lasts 1 year and offers a £15,000 bursary. Visit the Adopt an Intern website to find out more: http://www.adoptanintern.org.uk/museums-and-galleries-scotland/
We are offering one place with Edinburgh Museums & Galleries as a Volunteer Coordinator Intern. Details here:
