We are looking for a trainee to join our team. This is new a paid entry-level role. This opportunity has been created as an alternative route into working in an arts organisation, therefore we particularly encourage applications from individuals who do not hold higher education qualifications and do not have previous experience of working in a gallery. Instead, we are looking for a can-do nature, transferable skills and an enthusiasm for creativity and culture. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
The traineeship will provide hands-on training and experience of working in an arts organisation. You will work across a number of different departments, before you choose one team in which to carry out the second half of your traineeship. You will have regular meetings with a mentor and attend relevant courses.
This is a fixed-term position for 12 months from September 2022 to August 2023, as a three-day per week role from Tuesday to Thursday.
Normal working hours are 10:00 – 18:00.
The appointment is subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
Salary: London Living Wage (currently £11.05 per hour, updated annually) for 24 hours per week paid monthly.
Deadline: 09:00, Monday 27 June 2022.
