We are looking to recruit a Gallery Manager/Assistant Gallery Manager to work as part of our close-knit team within a very friendly, hands-on environment.
Whilst previous experience of working within a high-end retail or customer service environment would be very beneficial, the applicant’s attitude and ability to show initiative will be absolutely key. The role is wide-ranging and varied requiring a self starter with a proactive attitude and a natural ability to communicate and engage with customers and artists, with the emphasis being on generating strong, long-term relationships. There will be responsibility to carry out a number of on and offline marketing and administrative tasks, coordinating various exhibitions and events, whilst also being willing and able to take on full responsibility of the day-to-day running of the gallery.
Good technical skills with capabilities in social media platforms are important or at least a keenness and willingness to learn. A natural interest in art would be a bonus alongside customer service and sales/marketing experience whilst high levels of professionalism, self-motivation and excellent attention to detail are paramount. There will be the requirement to work at least one weekend day.
Depending on the level of the individual recruited, we have flexibility to build the role around the right person and hence somebody may hit the ground running with the general management of the gallery, or take time to grow into the role.
Please initially email us with a brief summary of your experience and with reasons as to why you feel you would be a great fit for our team.
