The Stanley Picker Traineeship is a unique opportunity for a recent graduate or postgraduate to gain valuable professional development experience, working as part of a gallery team.
Trainees get the opportunity to witness how their programmes are planned, developed and executed, from initial ideas and discussions to fundraising, installation, publicity, promotion, audience development and public accessibility.
The new Stanley Picker Trainee will support them on delivering an open ended, vibrant and responsive programme of exhibitions and projects with artists including Richard Grayson, Harminder Judge and Michelle Williams Gamaker.
The traineeship is offered on a part-time basis, two days per week over 5 months. A bursary is paid over the course of the placement, alongside the opportunity to pick up additional work at London Living Wage in a Front of House capacity during gallery opening hours at weekends.
Applicants should be able to show enthusiasm for our work and an interest in working with artists to develop and realise their projects. They should have a strong desire to learn and develop within a professional gallery environment and will be required to demonstrate knowledge of the visual arts as well as strong administrative and communication skills.
Matt's Gallery will prioritise applications from candidates from Black, Asian and ethnically diversebackgrounds, currently underrepresented in the Arts sector. Please only apply if you meet these criteria.
This professional traineeship is made possible with the continued generous support of the Stanley Picker Trust.
