To be successful in this role you will need a degree or a post-graduate degree in art history or a related field and demonstrable relevant work experience working with exhibitions or a permanent collection. You will have a broad knowledge of historic British art, especially of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as well as a willingness to work across the full breadth of the department’s chronological remit and activity. You will understand how Tate Britain’s work can widen participation, and have an awareness of issues of equality and cultural diversity as they affect the work of a major museum.

In addition you will need excellent writing, research and organisational skills.
