Brighton Early Music Festival Trainee Scheme

The BREMF trainee scheme is aimed at graduates who are looking to pursue a career in Arts Administration.

2020 Update

Each year we offer Festival traineeships to at least two (more usually four or five) graduates who are keen to build a career in Arts Administration.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and our lack of live events we are not advertising graduate trainee opportunities in 2020, but are always happy to hear from people who are interested in volunteering with the Festival.

Details of the 2021 scheme will be available here in due course.

The scheme explained

BREMF Trainees commit to 10-15 hours per week computer based work from home as well as attending at least 8 Festival events in Brighton between October and November. The placement includes experience of marketing, project management, production and concert management

The BREMF Festival Trainee programme offers experience and training, as well as support with job applications including interview advice and references. Unusually, BREMF trainees commit to only 10-15 hours per week, arranged flexibly to suit your schedule, plus weekends and evenings at Festival events, making a Festival Traineeship easily compatible with other paid work, and accessible to those who can’t afford to take on a full-time internship. Travel expenses and a meal allowance are provided.
