Interns help on range of tasks

First published in Keighley

Interns are helping with a range of useful tasks at the Bronte Parsonage Museum.

Roles have included preparing exhibits for the 2014 season, helping with marketing and improving the Haworth museum’s social media presence.

The Bronte Society, which runs the museum, set up a paid intern programme last year. The interns are graduates seeking employment in the museums field or experienced heritage staff wanting to expand their skills.

The first pair of interns – Mari Elliot and Jordan Blackman – recently finished their residency and have been replaced by Hermione Williams and Lauren Livesey.

Sue Newby, the parsonage’s education officer, said: “Mari and Jordan both had some experience already. Mari had experience with an arts charity and working with social media, and she wanted more experience working in collections."

The pair also helped prepare one of the new exhibitions at the Parsonage for 2014.
