The New Art Gallery Walsall is one of the leading visual arts venues in the West Midlands. Situated in the heart of Walsall town centre, the Gallery is a busy and vibrant building with an exciting programme of contemporary art exhibitions and collections displays, lively education events, an artist studio, library, café, and shop.

  • assisting with practical aspects of a busy venue, including monitoring deliveries, supporting set-ups for events and hires, and light cleaning duties.

To be successful, you will have a solid understanding of security and safeguarding issues associated with a public building, have some previous experience in a customer-focussed environment, understand the principles of health and safety, demonstrate good communication skills, and be able to work as part of a small team.
