Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.
The RIBA is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture.
Salary: £30,720- £35,840
Hours: 35 hours, one-year fixed contract with the opportunity for extension.
The RIBA is looking for an enthusiastic and organised Gallery Manager with an interest in architecture to join the Public Programmes team.
These are exciting times for us. It is a future ambition of RIBA to become the leading national voice for architecture by creating world-class exhibitions and events programmes for both a specialist audience and for the broader public.
The newly built Architecture Gallery, located within RIBA headquarters at 66 Portland Place, signals the first important step in achieving these ambitions. To date, RIBA has showcased critically acclaimed collection-focused exhibitions as well as temporary installation by artists and architects, such as Assemble, Pablo Bronstein and Sam Jacob Studio.
This is a public-facing role and the Gallery Manager will ensure that RIBA provides the highest standards of customer care to visitors and ensures that front of house staff is adequately supported and trained to meet these criteria. The Gallery Manager will run the day-to-day operation, with focus on technical and logistical aspects as well as security.
With previous experience in programme delivery at a museum or gallery, you will work in collaboration with colleagues to ensure our collections and commissioned installations are showcased and cared for in the best possible way, to manage and support design, conservation and installation teams in the delivery of new exhibitions and to contribute to the development of major exhibition seasons.
You will liaise creatively and collaboratively with exhibition designers, art handlers and curators in order for the gallery to operate effectively and efficiently. The role also oversees touring of RIBA exhibitions to international and national venues as well as developing our newly established sale of limited editions.
With previous experience in a similar role as well as an understanding and interest in the arts, architecture or heritage, you should be familiar with professional gallery standards and with best practice in the management of museum collections and installations of complex temporary installations.
Proven experience of exhibition delivery is key. You should be used to preparing staff rotas and work schedules, have good project management and interpersonal skills and be able to remain calm under pressure, particularly when working to firm deadlines.
