The EUYO takes on interns, with a relevant musical background and experience in office administration, with a preference for those who are interested in a career in Arts administration. Internships are unpaid, but offer a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate to get experience in all areas of working for a small but dynamic Arts organisation. While the EUYO cannot guarantee to take interns on tour, every effort is made to offer this opportunity where possible. Interns are normally taken on for a three-month period, renewable for a further three months if both sides agree.
