Casual Learning Support Facilitator

The Hepworth Wakefield has welcomed over 2.2 million visitors since opening in May 2011 and is now firmly established as a major local, national and international attraction, winning Art Fund Museum of the Year in 2017. We present an outstanding programme of historical and contemporary exhibitions alongside displays drawn from Wakefield’s collection of 20th-century and contemporary art. In August 2019, the first phase of The Hepworth Wakefield Garden opened. Designed by Tom Stuart-Smith, the garden features sculptures and is one of the largest free public gardens in the UK. We value all our staff and their commitment to driving our success.

We are looking to grow our team of casual facilitators who support and deliver creative activities as part of our Learning Programme.  Our facilitators work on Art Pods in the gallery and support artist workshops in the Learning Studios for schools, families and communities. You will have excellent communication skills especially when working with children and families, an understanding and interest in visual art, and an ability to work on your own initiative as well as part of a team.

This is a great opportunity to join us and to develop your skills in facilitating creative activities in a gallery setting. If you have an interest in Gallery education and you have experience of working or volunteering within arts education or engagement, then we would be keen to hear from you.
