Tate Britain, the home of British art from 1500 to the present, is seeking to appoint a Director to lead the Gallery. The new Director will succeed Stephen Deuchar, who has been appointed Director of The Art Fund, joining Tate Britain at a time when a major programme of capital development is under way and when the opportunity to develop a vision of engagement with historic and contemporary British art has never been more exciting.

He or she will conceive and execute the public programme at Tate Britain, representing the Gallery both externally and internally, whilst also working within the Director’s Group developing the Tate-wide Strategic Plan.

Candidates for the post will need to command respect across the organisation of Tate, have extraordinary creative vision and demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively with senior colleagues in line with Tate’s cultural objectives.
