The South London Gallery is recruiting two new full-time project assistants as part of a 12-month training programme for people beginning their careers in the arts and cultural sector.
Deadline for applications: 10am, 16 September 2019
The two candidates will benefit from practical work experience as well as an individually tailored training programme which will include external courses, one-to-one time with an industry mentor, membership of a peer support network, independent research time and a range of in-house training opportunities.
You will find these roles rewarding if you are enthusiastic and proactive and enjoy working with children, families, older residents and visitors and would like to support them to access the SLGs wide range of resources and projects.
What we are looking for
You need to be enthusiastic about new challenges and excited about learning new things. Some previous experience of working with your local community (through schools, community centres, youth clubs or charities) or in a customer-facing role would be helpful. You do not need to have a degree or previous experience working in the arts or cultural sector.
We are particularly interested in applicants from low income backgrounds and those from black and ethnic minority communities, who are underrepresented in museums and galleries.
