We rely on a dedicated team of volunteers whose contribution is integral to the running of our centre.

Spending time volunteering with us offers the chance to develop valuable skills and gain an insight into the workings of an internationally leading arts organisation. Please click on the links below to read more about the voluntary roles available within our team.

We are also able to accommodate occasional student placements and work experience requests – please email with your enquiry. However, we do notĀ support unpaid internships. Any intern role will be advertised in the same way as other paid opportunities within the organisation and can be viewed here.

How to apply

To apply for any of the above opportunities please send a copy of your current CV and a personal statement of no more than 1 side of A4 to clearly stating which role you would like to be considered for in the subject line.

To help us determine whether you would be a suitable candidate your statement should cover the following points:

  • Why are you interested in completing a volunteer placement at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art?
  • Any relevant skills, experience or qualifications you will bring to the role, referring to the role descriptions
  • How do you intend to develop your skills and experience with us?
  • Your availability and the amount of time you can commit

Please note we accept applications to volunteer in Visitor Services or the Archive and Library on a rolling basis but places are not always available immediately. Opportunities within the curatorial team or for engagement projects are for fixed dates that relate to our exhibition and project schedules and are therefore not flexible – check the descriptions above for details.
