Internships – London
Tarisio London – Autumn 2016 Internship
We are currently looking for one intern to assist with our October auction in a paid position.
The 9-week program is designed for you to experience an entire auction cycle. You will be primarily working alongside our auction team, but will also have the opportunity to work on the Cozio Archive and on Tarisio’s creative projects.
During this internship you will become an integral part of our close-knit team as we prepare our rare instruments and bows for auction.
This opportunity requires no previous experience and is a great platform for anyone interested in starting a career in the arts.
Weeks 1-4: Behind the scenes
The first two weeks you will be helping us prepare the catalogue for our October Auction where you will experience cataloguing, archiving, shipping and receiving.
You will mainly assist our auction team as well as our photographer and luthier. You will also work with the sales and marketing teams, researching media outlets and finalising logistics in the lead up to our European Highlight Viewings.
Weeks 5-8: Private and public viewing
Once the catalogue is online, our doors open for private viewing appointments and the office fills with clients coming to view and try out the instruments and bows.
Your role will be the primary front of house representative, looking after clients in the office and supporting buyer inquiries. You will also help steward our public viewing at the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, which takes place on the final two days of the auction.
Week 9: After sale
Once the auction has ended, you will help with our post-sale logistics, assisting with buyer collections and working with the communications team collating auction results (and new world records set!).
We are looking for someone who enjoys engaging with people and being part of a team. Positive attitude is a must!
Candidates must be over 18 and eligible to work in the UK.
