The Jam Factory in Oxford is looking for casual Intern
Laid back and welcoming, The Jam Factory is a safe haven for the art enthusiasts and fresh food lovers of Oxford. Located in the heart of the west end, just a stone’s throw from Oxford train station, bus station, city centre shops, Saïd Business School and Oxford's dreaming spires; Jam Factory Arts champions an unrivalled commitment to providing high-quality, temporary exhibitions in the light and airy space of Frank Cooper’s old Victorian Marmalade Factory.
The Jam Factory Arts Centre is its own unique creation: Whilst lending its walls to a diverse range of artists and building its reputation as a gallery space in its own right, we also run a variety of art classes and play host to various artistic groups.
An internship with Jam Factory Arts would suit an arts student or arts management student at degree or masters level who is looking to gain experience and knowledge in a gallery environment.
Our internships would generally involve working on projects under the supervision of the arts manager but will require a good deal of creative thought and initiative. You may be involved in such areas as administration, marketing or exhibition installation.
The internship lasts for 3-4 months. The intern should be available 3/4 times a month to help with Exhibition installs and takedowns. You will get a £5 food allowance and local travel paid.

- A demonstrable interest in visual culture
- A committed interest in working in the art world
- Excellent communication skills
- Ability to work unsupervised, using own initiative
- Good I.T. skills
