An exciting one-year internship opportunity to work within the Press Office, one of the busiest parts of the British Library, the national Library of the UK.  One day you could be responding to press and filming enquiries and another day you might be working at a press event or accompanying a film crew around the building.  You will also be required to manage the diaries and schedules of the heads of team.
