The AF would like to establish a Junior Fellowship scheme to give 3 talented young people the opportunity to become key members of our team and gain curatorial and management experience over one year (part-time). The scheme will provide the Junior Fellows with a modest income during their placement.

According to figures released by the CEBR, 52% of last year’s university-leavers were unemployed or under-employed six months after graduating. A record number of students; 320,000, have graduated this summer which suggests up to 64,000 of these are currently facing unemployment. The Junior Fellowship programme will not only offer talented young people a paid placement, but it will also enable them to gain essential transferable skills that will facilitate their future employability.


The AF Junior Fellowship will provide a formal means by which to identify and nurture new talent, benefiting both the Fellows and our organisation in terms of diversity of candidates, longevity of placement and increased level of engagement. This paid Fellowship will attract a more diverse range of candidates and provide a proactive way to tackle current unemployment issues, enabling young people to further explore a professional field of interest, whilst receiving some financial support.
