18-month Apprenticeship: May 2019 – November 2020
The Royal Academy is offering an exciting opportunity to join its HR team for an 18-month apprenticeship. As an apprentice, you will undertake the role of HR Assistant, supporting the wider team while developing knowledge of HR processes and administration. At the end of your apprenticeship you will have a CIPD Level 3 certificate in Human Resource Practice.
Whether you already have some work experience in an HR environment, or had never even considered a career in HR, this might be the opportunity for you. What’s most important is that you are willing to learn, grow and develop a career both within HR and with the Royal Academy.
About the Royal Academy of Arts
The Royal Academy of Arts is one of the UK’s foremost arts institutions, famous for its programme of temporary exhibitions. From ancient sculpture to modern-day masterpieces, we are the original home of the blockbuster exhibition. Dedicated to promoting the creation, study and enjoyment of art to all audiences, we are led by eminent artists and architects, and are unique in having practitioners at our very core.
We are an innovative and forward-looking organisation, yet we’re also immensely proud and respectful of our two and a half centuries of heritage. Our mission is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists and we are leaders in the exhibition, creation and debate of the visual arts. Our staff, volunteers, students and Royal Academicians all share and support this vision, and our values are at the heart of all that we do.
