Responsibilities will include managing these teams as well as budgets.

Applicants for each post must be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of modern and contemporary arts in the UK and internationally. Essential requirements include a proven curatorial background, which includes successful delivery, integrated programming, excellent team management and working effectively in a fast-paced environment. Communication and editorial skills are essential. An active involvement in fundraising is vital.
