Galleries Events and Marketing Assistant

Do you have a passion for rare books, archival material and the visual arts?  Do you have great communications skills, and are you comfortable with IT and social media?  Are you committed to outstanding service delivery? 

Our galleries provide a showcase for our art collections and treasures of our Special Collections.  Visitors range from University students and staff to members of the public, including community groups and school students.  We offer a variety of events and exhibitions to promote our collections, and use our website and social media streams to engage and attract people.

The role combines front-of-house duties and backroom support.  You’ll be a point of contact at our reception desks and help supervise our gallery assistants, ensuring security is maintained and reporting maintenance issues.  You’ll help with events and exhibitions: publicity, marketing and evaluation, as well as general administration and the physical preparations – this may involve lifting and handling, working at height and using specialist tools and equipment (training is provided).
