Brighton Early Music Festival Trainee Scheme

The BREMF trainee scheme is aimed at graduates who are looking to pursue a career in Arts Administration.
It runs from July/August – November each year, with applications and interviews in May and June.

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.

The BREMF Festival Trainee programme provides support with preparing with future job applications in the classical music sector, as well as giving trainees practical hands-on experience and lots of opportunities to get involved with the Festival. Unusually, BREMF Festival 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 placement. Travel expenses and a meal allowance are provided.

Festival Traineeships run July/August - November each year, and interviews are usually held in June. We will post details of how to apply, along with closing date and interview dates in Spring 2017. To register your interest and make sure we send you the information by email when available, please contact
