We’re proud of the places our previous interns have gone for their first jobs on finishing our internships. Could you follow in their footsteps?

The Barber’s annual internships in the three areas of Collections, Learning and Engagement, and Communications are now open to applicants.

There are two consecutive, 20-week internships in each area: the first runs from early September until mid january; the second starts in February and runs until mid/late June.

They are part-time (19.5 hours a week), and you’ll get a chance to experience and often play an integral role in each department. 

The positions is open to those who have graduated within the last three years, or are due to graduate this summer.

Candidates should apply through the Jobs pages of the University of Birmingham website.

We welcome applications for unpaid work experience placements and offer a limited number of placements for school pupils at GCSE and A-Level. We accommodate one student at a time – for a one week placement – three times a year. These placement opportunities are allocated after applicants are invited to attend an interview.
