Calling all London youth to action
Hi, my name is Anna and I am working for the next two years on the youth projects and learning initiatives for the Transforming IWM London programme.
I love my job. I got it through a combination of hard work and jumping at all the work experience and internship opportunities I could. Now I get to offer a few opportunities to young people trying to make their own future careers exciting. This makes me happy.
We are currently looking to recruit the creative, thoughtful, interested and sparky young minds of the next generation for a new role in the museum. We want young people to challenge our organisation for the future and help us to make the museum relevant to younger people. We are going through some exciting changes including the building redevelopment at IWM London, a cultural programme to mark the centenary of the First World War followed by IWM London’s 100th birthday in 2017.
We are recruiting a small group of headstrong young people, 14 – 19 years old and giving them a host of opportunities to get involved across departments such as Design, Digital Media, Events, Marketing, Business and Planning, Learning and Interpretation, Exhibitions, Conservation and more… Great for anyone who wants to take their future into their own hands and step up as a youth representative.
If you are, or you know, someone between the ages of 14 to 19 who enjoys a challenge, is brave and creative, then come find out what it means to be a representative of the museum’s future at one of our taster sessions at IWM London.
Wednesday 27 June, 4.15 – 5.45pm
Monday 16 July, 4.15 – 5.45pm
