Guildhall Art Gallery holds the City of London's permanent art
collection. It is an accredited art gallery offering a lively
exhibitions program to the public. The collection comprises over
4,000 oil paintings, sculptures and works on paper. Highlights
include London topographical subjects from the 17th century to the
present, Victorian paintings, civic and royal portraits from the
17th century onwards and the Sir Matthew Smith studio collection.

Guildhall Art Gallery is committed to supporting the professional
development of recently graduated conservators and is pleased to
have offered conservation internships since 2007. In this internship
you will gain invaluable experience of working in a major art
institution, learn about gallery practice and contribute to the
daily activities of the conservation team.  Over six months, you
will have the opportunity - under appropriate supervision - to carry
out the examination, documentation and treatment of a frame or
frames from the collection required for exhibition or loan.

Our conservation team consists of a Senior Conservator (paintings)
(currently a job-share), a part-time Lead Conservator (frames) and 2
part-time Conservators (1 paintings and 1 frames).

The placement requires good problem-solving skills and strong
practical ability to carry out conservation and restoration
treatments of frames. You should have good learning skills, the
ability to work effectively as part of a team and on your own, and
be motivated to developing a career in frame conservation. There is
the possibility of using some of the internship for a research
project, and applicants are invited to discuss any relevant areas of
interest at interview. Applications from those wishing to undertake
the internship part-time over a longer period will also be

Applicants should have a recent conservation qualification relevant
to frames. Preference will be given to graduates from UK training

are obliged to confirm that every applicant has a right to work in

student visa and requires the intern to hold the appropriate work
visa for the duration of the placement.
