We are seeking a new Saturday Assistant to help us make art public.
You will work alongside the Operation and Distribution Assistant on Saturdays and help care for our exhibitions and audiences. You will welcome visitors to the gallery, support any events that are taking place, conduct visitor surveys and help invigilate artworks and maintain the gallery space.
You will also help with the Birmingham Art Map which is published four times a year, collecting and collating listings, adding information into an InDesign template, and updating the Art Map website.
You will support three exhibition seasons across the next year – Lady Skollie and Sofia Niazi 28/09–14/12/19, Sonia Boyce and Lindsey Mendick 25/01–18/04/20 and Lawrence Lek 02/05–18/07/20. When the shows are open you will work each Saturday 11am–5pm (6 hrs per day). There may also be opportunities to work at other times when we need cover.
Closing date for applications is Friday, 16 August 2019
