INTERNSHIP SCHEME

The Founder-Director of the English Music Festival is currently offering part-time internships of a minimum of six months. These can commence at any point during the year. The work will average between 5 and 12 hours a week (depending partly on the amount of time the intern has available) and can be done from home, although occasional meetings in London or Oxfordshire with the Director might be necessary.

 

Although this is a voluntary post, all expenses incurred in the discharge of the intern’s duties will be fully reimbursed.

 

This internship would be especially appropriate for those wishing to begin a career in arts, concert management or PR. Benefits include:

 

  • The opportunity to be involved with the running and management of a prestigious music festival
  • Establishing contacts with artists and agents
  • Establishing contacts with other festivals and concert organisations
  • Familiarisation with the funding bodies and sponsors involved in the arts
  • Establishing contacts with journalists and critics
  • The opportunity to develop projects on an autonomous basis in line with the Festival’s vision

 

We strongly encourage past interns to remain involved with the Festival and are delighted that previous participants in this scheme have returned as volunteers or staff at Festivals long after their internship ended. Many have also gone on to careers in the worlds of music publishing, performance and academia.
