We're Hiring! Visitor Ambassadors

POSTED: 08 April 2021

We are looking for three motivated, friendly and practical people to form our new Visitor Ambassador team and become the public face of Autograph, at Rivington Place, in the heart of Shoreditch. Want to know more? Download the job pack and join us for a virtual Q&A.

Deadline for applications is midday on Friday 30 April 2021. 

As a Visitor Ambassador for Rivington Place, you will be the first point of contact for all visitors to our award-wining building. You'll need to like meeting, greeting and helping all kinds of people who are interested in contemporary art – as thousands of visitors come to explore the themes and ideas we share through our gallery exhibitions, talks and events every year. We want to make sure we offer all of them a warm welcome and a safe space and with your help to find out what they thought of their visit. You will need to be equally comfortable helping our tenants and their business clients who will also look to you as their first point of contact whether that’s dealing with an air conditioning problem or managing a delivery.

We are proud to be based in the London borough of Hackney and to serve so many local residents – more than one third of our annual visitors live, work or study near Autograph's gallery.

We have three roles to fill: one 15-hour role; one 21-hour role and one 23-hour role. All three positions will involve some evening and weekend working on a rostered basis. You don’t have to have worked in a gallery or arts space before to apply for these roles! What you do need is an interest in art, some experience in helping and serving people in any retail, hospitality, leisure or office environment, good IT skills, willingness to learn and be trained in some tasks, and an attitude which is positive.

Rivington Place values and promotes diversity and equal opportunities, and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
