Tate’s vision is to serve as artistically adventurous and culturally inclusive art museums for the UK and the world. We deliver this through activities in our four galleries across the UK (Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Britain and Tate Modern), our digital platforms and collaborations with our national and international partners. At the heart of Tate is our collection of art, which includes British art from the 16th century to the present day, and international modern art from 1900 to the present day.
Since Tate Modern opened in 2000, its programme of major temporary exhibitions, collection displays, commissions, live performance, and film programme has developed in diversity, scope and profile. In 2016 Tate Modern opened the Blavatnik Building increasing the scope and breadth of the exhibition and collection displays. The Tate Modern curatorial team sits within the Tate Modern Division and ensures the highest standard of content and delivery of this programme.
This is an exciting opportunity to be involved at the heart of Tate Modern, as the first point of contact and providing full administrative support to the Director, Tate Modern and provide management support for the Tate Modern Directorate. This includes comprehensive administrative, secretarial and diary support, as well as line management responsibilities.
You will have proven secretarial experience at a senior manager level in a similarly complex and a fast-paced environment. You will have demonstrable experience of developing and administering a wide range of office management systems, highly developed organisational skills and a proactive approach, as well as impeccable attention to detail. With excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate diplomatically and effectively at all levels, you will possess a flexible approach to work, having the ability to react to changing and sometimes conflicting priorities/commitments as well as to emergencies.
Our jobs are like our galleries, open to all
