Nottingham Contemporary is one of largest and leading centres for contemporary art in the UK. We opened in 2009 to great acclaim in a landmark new building by Caruso St John in the middle of Nottingham. We have welcomed over 1.3 million visitors since then. Our programme is mainly devoted to significant  emerging and mid-career contemporary artists, alongside occasional solo exhibitions of modernist and pre-20th century figures that have a particular resonance for artists today. We also produce and present ambitious group exhibitions, such as The Place Is Here, Monuments Should Not Be Trusted, Glenn Ligon: Encounters and Collisions, Aquatopia: The Imaginary of the Ocean Deep and Kafou: Haiti, Art and Vodou, which situate artistic practices within a wide field of ideas.

You will have at least two years relevant experience. Excellent written and verbal skills, experience of budget monitoring, an aptitude for teamwork, an attention to detail, an ability to meet deadlines under pressure, and an understanding of what it means to work with art and artists and a large, diverse public, are all essential.

This position is a fixed term contract initially to end of May 2018.
