Archiving The Architecture Foundation: Call for Interns

Over nearly two decades The Architecture Foundation has been an important voice in championing contemporary architecture in London and internationally. From the original premises on Bury Street (opened 1991) to today, the AF has produced a diverse programme of exhibitions, events, road shows, design competitions, awards and education projects.

As the AF approaches its 20th anniversary, its new Project Space in Tooley Street will be the site of an ambitious project - delving into the AF's history to create a comprehensive, multimedia archive that will be accessible on the redesigned website.

We are looking for a team of enthusiastic interns to catalogue and digitise existing materials and expand elements of the AF's history to create a new online resource.

Applicants should have strong research, writing, and organisational skills, a demonstrable knowledge of and enthusiasm for architecture, and the ability to work effectively both in a team and individually. Interns should be available to work a minimum of 3 days a week from July to September. Internships are voluntary, with a modest stipend for expenses.

Our internship programme offers an opportunity to be part of the AF team, and to gain work experience and skills within a leading cultural organisation. The Architecture Foundation is keen to encourage applications from people from all backgrounds including race, disability, gender, faith and sexual orientation.

If you would like to be considered for this internship programme please email a copy of your CV, a covering letter and a completed equal opportunities monitoring form (please ask us for this) for the attention of Petra Funk with the subject line 'Archive Intern' to petra@architecturefoundation.org.uk.

A shortlist of applicants will be invited for interview. We will not contact unsuccessful applicants.
