Gain valuable skills within the Digital Team supporting the Head of Digital with a range of tasks within video production and digital development. We have two voluntary placements for student internships, available for 3 months for a minimum of 2 days per week. 

  • Placement 1  – Digital Development
  • Placement 2 – Video

These are quite technical roles and would require students to have a certain level of understanding of how to operate video editing software and social media outlets. However, anyone with an interest in gaining experience of working within a communications department in an arts organisation is encouraged to apply.
Both roles are subject to a 2 week probationary period.

Student placements in ICA Communications Department will involve varied tasks focused on supporting the Head of Digital in all aspects of organising and forward planning the ICA’s digital activities as required. The successful candidates will work closely with the Communications Department providing proactive and comprehensive support in all aspects of online development and office management.

All students will be working closely within their team on general administrative and office duties which will enable them to gain a thorough and practical working knowledge of a Communications Department within a public visual arts organisation, and develop skills and experiences that are complementary to your studies.  
A full job description is available on request by emailing MFAReception@kent.ac.uk

Please send your CV and covering letter to learning@ica.org.uk
by 5pm Friday 4th October.

Please note that this is a two day per week commitment: Please contact your course convenor/ year co-ordinator if you have any concerns about how you’d manage this internship requirement alongside your course commitments.
