Current Opportunities

Heinz Archive and Library Volunteer Opportunities

The National Portrait Gallery’s Heinz Archive and Library is an important research facility housing library and manuscript collections, as well as a unique collection of reference material relating to British portraiture including image files that contain more than 600,000 photographic and other reproductions of portraits and an index that contains more than a million references to British portraits.

We have voluntary opportunities available to help the department maintain and develop these resources.  Training will be provided for all voluntary positions and there may be opportunities to participate in other training programmes and events organised by the Gallery. In the first instance we ask for a minimum commitment of three months, with a view to an ongoing placement.

Closing date for applications is 5.00pm on Friday, 31 July 2015.

Please apply by post, including a copy of your curriculum vitae, to: Joseph Ripp, Librarian, National Portrait Gallery, St Martin’s Place, London WC2H 0HE.  We regret that we are not able to acknowledge applications due to our funding position.  The closing date is 5:00pm on Friday, 31st July and those who are short-listed will be contacted by Friday, 14th August.  Informal conversations are expected to take place the following week, and the placements to begin soon thereafter.
