Students, Internships & Volunteers

National Museum of Ireland Archaeology Building Entrance
Education & Outreach Internship

The National Museum of Ireland (NMI) invites applications for internships within the Education & Outreach Department.

Placements can be of 6 – 12 months duration and will be based at the NMI Dublin sites.

The Education and Outreach Department acts as a key point of contact between the Museum’s exhibitions and collections and existing and potential audiences. Interns will work with a dynamic team of museum educators, all with many years’ experience in delivering education programmes, resources and services to a wide range of audiences.

This is an opportunity to gain valuable experience within an active museum education department whose remit is to develop learning programmes and services for audiences, including primary and post-primary school groups, adults, families and special interest groups.

As an intern, you will be able to observe and participate in the broad range of work of the Department from programme development to delivery and in the administration of services and programmes within this busy department.

As internships are for a minimum of 6 months and maximum of 12 months, they offer a real chance to understand the development of projects and programmes over time.

Please note that this internship is unpaid. If interested please contact the HR Unit, National Museum of Ireland at with a CV and covering email by 5pm on Thursday 17th April 2014. CV must include a minimum of two referees.

Please note: if you are in receipt of any Social Welfare payment you must have written permission from the Department of Social Protection to participate in this unpaid internship.

Volunteers & Interns

NMI wish to advise prospective Volunteers and Interns, who are in receipt of any payment from the Department of Social Protection that it is necessary to contact their local employment exchange, in advance of submitting an application, to enquire if they will be permitted to carry out volunteer/intern work in NMI while in receipt of this payment.

Work Experience

The National Museum of Ireland (NMI) wishes to advise Transition Year Students seeking work placements during the 2013-14 academic year that all placements have been allocated and we are no longer accepting applications for work experience.
