Are you interested in gaining invaluable experience in a leading arts organisation? FACT gives bright and enthusiastic people the opportunity to work in contemporary arts and creative media.

We offer a diverse range of placements within FACT departments, including the Programme, Media Services, Front of House and Marketing teams. Internships normally run for six to 12 weeks and expenses will be covered.

We feel that interns should gain valuable, meaningful experience from their time with us and so we do not offer general internship places. Each department, however, occasionally has projects which would suit an internship and so we recruit specifically for those as and when they arise.

All of our internships are advertised on this page so keep checking back regularly. You can also learn of any opportunities through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

FACT offers work experience placements as we can to schools, colleges and universities that have students who wish to experience life in the art sector. Work experience gives participant a chance to observe the organisation on a day-to-day basis and start to appreciate the structure of a typical working week. 

So that we can offer the best experience possible to the participating students, we limit the amount of monthly placements offered.  This ensures the student will have adequate tasks and work to participate in and can engage well with FACT as an organisation during their time here.

If you are a student who and would like to carry out your work experience at FACT then please contact us with the following information

  • dates of your placement
  • length of placement
  • the name of your school, college or university
  • a statement as to why you would like work experience at FACT
