Arts Administration Internship at the Irish Writers Centre 2023 (rolling) 

Are you interested in getting involved with the Irish Writers Centre as a paid intern? This opportunity would ideally suit someone with a literature or an arts background wishing to join a dedicated team to assist in the delivery of resources and supports to Irish writers. The role includes a mix of front-facing customer service engagement, desktop administrative and marketing under the guidance of team members. It is anticipated that as the intern becomes more familiar with the organisation, the role will become more specialised to support appropriate team members in one or more of areas: administration, projects, grant-writing/support, communications and/or events.

As this internship is run on a rolling basis, we would typically review applications twice a year, in spring and autumn. Please email your cover letter and CV to info@irishwriterscentre.ie and include ‘Arts Administration Internship at the Irish Writers Centre’ in the subject line. It is essential that both of the above stated documents are collated into a single word or PDF for consideration.

Building Access

The Irish Writers Centre is currently housed in 19 Parnell Square, Dublin. This is a Georgian building which unfortunately does not have a lift. There are five steps into the entrance level. The majority of IWC’s events and activities take place in the Kiely room, which is on the first floor and requires climbing 30 steps in total. Occasionally, the building has events on higher levels. There are public toilets available and these are located on the ground floor, basement and fourth floor of the building. For further information on or to ask questions about building access, please email info@irishwriterscentre.ie.
