We will advertise any creative job, commission or contract for free.

We recognise that there is great value in people having access to proper work experience, where it is offered and arranged properly and is a mutually beneficial arrangement, but that this should never be used as a way of attempting to circumvent national minimum wage regulations. Please note that we will not advertise unpaid internships unless they are part of a recognised further or higher education course.

Arts Council and Creative & Cultural Skills have published these guidelines to help clarify the legal obligations of arts organisations offering internships. Creative Skillset have published these guidelines for those offering work experience in the Creative Industries.
