Voluntary & Work Experience Placements

At the Victoria and Albert Museum, opportunities exist to volunteer and intern in many different departments.

Volunteers work on the Information desks, as tour guides, as escorts for people with disabilities, and also in administrative and support roles in the offices. Internships and work experience placements offer the opportunity to experience the vast range of job opportunties across the Museum.

We welcome the contribution that interns and volunteers make to the Museum and the benefits of enthusiasm, fresh ideas and diversity that they can bring.

The following guidance has been developed to support applicants to these opportunties:

Volunteering – guidance for applicants

Internships – guidance for applicants

Work Experience – guidance for applicants

Please do not send speculative CV’s and applications as we regret that we are unable to respond to every enquiry.
