New Icon Internships supported by the Clare Hampson Fund

We're thrilled to announce that the Clare Hampson Fund has been able to support two Icon Internships, providing essential support for emerging professionals to gain valuable experience and kick start their careers in conservation. 

The first internship is a 12 month placement for a book conservator at the British Library. The intern will conserve/preserve items from the British Library’s collections in order to improve the longevity, stability and accessibility of these items. They will learn how to make treatment decisions for a range of collection items considering these within a spectrum from museum artefact through to functioning, working object to meet the conservation challenges and accessibility needs of a national institution. 

The second is looking for someone to work in the conservation of Old Master Prints and Drawings at the British Museum. The intern will work in the Collections Care Department, developing their skills in the conservation of Old Master Prints and Drawings.  The internship is suitable for someone who has recently graduated from a relevant conservation course.

The deadline for applications is September 23. For more information, please visit our internship page.
