We are looking for Exhibition Hosts to work across both our venues to support us in delivering exhibitions using works from the Arts Council Collection of more than 8,000 works including paintings, sculptures, prints and moving images, as part of its National Partners Programme.

For most of the time, Exhibition Hosts are based in the exhibition spaces, offering a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors. We are looking for applicants with excellent people skills. You’ll need to be able to read people well, be a great listener and have an instinct about when a visitor wants to be approached and when they just want space.

It would be great if you are already enthusiastic about contemporary art, but it’s much more important that you are confident in meeting and talking with people. We’ll support you in learning about the exhibitions and events we present. We are interested in your potential above all, not qualifications and previous experience. It’s also important that you are vigilant. One of your key responsibilities will be to make sure the art on show is safe and that our visitors are too.
