Trainee Curators

Falmouth Art Gallery, Royal Cornwall Museum and Wheal Martyn Clay Works are offering three exciting opportunities for individuals aspiring to develop a career in museums and galleries, as part of a wider programme led by Cornwall Museums Partnership. Our Trainee/Intern Curator roles offer a range of experiences aimed at developing the collections management and public engagement skills required of a 21st century curator. Each successful candidate will be employed by one of the three organisations above, where they will fulfil the majority of the role but also have the opportunity to work at all three locations during the contract, gaining experience in three very different regional heritage organisations.

You will work alongside small, friendly teams of experienced museum professionals and volunteers and experience all aspects of museum work. The roles will focus on assisting with a range of collections projects including collections documentation, exhibitions, digital and community engagement as well as involvement in the periodic Museum Accreditation process.

You will be supported by an individual training plan and budget to allow you to attend training and undertake study trips to museums/galleries. Through Cornwall Museums Partnership you will benefit from and contribute to a peer network of other curatorial interns in Cornwall. This role is an entry-level position designed to provide hands on work experience in a range of museum activities. We welcome all backgrounds and are interested in your potential to develop.

These posts are funded with the support of Arts Council England through their National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) Programme, the John Ellerman Foundation and by the European Social Fund and Cornwall Council through Cultivator Cornwall.
