Engagement Assistant (Three Part-time Roles)

Turner Contemporary is seeking three part-time Engagement Assistants to join the gallery team.

Engagement Assistants are central in delivering the gallery’s mission and values. Through providing exceptional standards of visitor experience, you will ensure all visitors are warmly welcomed, encouraged to learn about and engage with our exhibitions, and have a safe and enjoyable visit, working proactively to increase the number and diversity of our visitors.

Engagement Assistants ensure the safety and security of art works and visitors at all times. They welcome and support visitors, encouraging charitable giving, promote the commercial offer of the gallery and deliver learning activities.

As an Engagement Assistant, you will be professional and friendly, interested in the arts and the work of Turner Contemporary and keen to share your knowledge and interest with our visitors. As well as invigilating exhibitions, you will also support the delivery of the gallery’s learning programme for schools, families and adults.

The gallery is keen to attract staff from backgrounds that are under-represented in the organisation. Applicants who can demonstrate lived experience of diversity and/or understanding of the issues most affecting our community, are particularly welcome.

Deadline for applications: 9pm Sunday 8 August 2021

Interviews to be held: Tuesday 17 August 2021 and will take place online
