Our paid intern programmes typically last between 6 and 12 months and consist of a structured programme of work experience and learning.

Interns often work on projects and gain hands-on experience with real responsibility. 

We currently have paid intern programmes in Retail, Conservation, Curatorial, Marketing and PR and Human Resources.

Work experience

We are able to offer limited work experience placements at both the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace. 

These opportunities are focused around students in Years 10 – 13 from local community schools.

Equal opportunities

Historic Royal Palaces is an equal opportunities employer and we particularly welcome black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) applicants as we consider these groups are currently under represented both within the heritage and cultural sector and within our own organisation.

Working at Historic Royal Palaces is a great experience as you get to meet and collaborate with people from many different backgrounds.
