Working at Turner Contemporary

At Turner Contemporary, we believe art has the power to positively impact people, places, and lives. Since our establishment in 2011, we have become one of the UK’s most successful galleries and contributed to Margate’s revitalisation. As a registered charity, our ambitious artistic programme extends beyond the walls of our award-winning gallery. Our efforts have earned us an international reputation.

We are dedicated to supporting the creativity and ideas of artists and providing an exceptional experience for our visitors. We are committed to creating a welcoming, inspiring, and inclusive work environment. Our team’s hard work and talent allow us to achieve success, and we take pride in being a supportive and friendly place to work. We value our staff and offer flexible working options, training and networking opportunities, an Employee Assistance Scheme to support employee well-being, and staff discounts in our gallery shop and café, among other perks. Additionally, we are proud to be a Living Wage Employer.

Located in Margate’s vibrant and artistic seaside town, we are part of a thriving art scene, surrounded by beautiful beaches. We are grateful to be a part of such a strong community.

At Turner Contemporary, we promote diversity and welcome applications from underrepresented candidates in the arts sector. We are a Disability Confident Employer, and any applicants who identify as disabled and meet the minimum criteria will be offered an interview.

We strive to create a diverse and inclusive environment where everyone feels supported and able to thrive. Our inclusive practices and positive, supportive culture aim to remove any barriers that may prevent individuals from joining our team. If you are interested in working with us but feel that something may prevent you from doing so, please feel free to reach out. We want to do our best to make the application process as accessible as possible and will do everything we can to support you throughout the selection process.
