Placements are a great way to gain on-the-job experience, explore career options, demonstrate initiative and develop skills further. Amgueddfa Cymru make a certain number of placements available every year, demand is always high and due to this we advertise all our placements in our Placement Current Opportunities. Successful applications are based on a clear match being identified between projects and the applicants’ objectives and studies. With seven national museums across Wales, our placements can cover a wealth of topics, such as Archaeology, Art, Conservation, Geology, History, etc.
Placements are always agreed for a fixed period of time (15-29 days) and involve a commitment of time by the applicant, usually during Monday to Friday office hours. The minimum age for placements is 18 and there is no upper age limit.
We currently don’t have any Placements available, why not look at our volunteering section for ideas and opportunities. You can also follow our Twitter page to receive updates on our new opportunities.
