Gallery Assistant

Are you committed to outstanding service delivery? Do you have an eye for detail? Can you make a positive contribution to our team?

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. Our team is the first point of contact in the galleries and provides a professional and friendly welcome.

We are looking for someone with a flexible approach, as you will need to work across both  galleries. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, able to provide a positive response to visitor queries. Our team opens and closes the galleries, and vigilance is essential to ensure the security of our collections. You will help with setting up events and temporary exhibitions – this may involve lifting and handling, working at height and using specialist tools and equipment (training is provided).
