Casual Visitor Experience Assistant

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.

Do you have a passion for art, working with the public and a commitment to providing the highest level of customer care? The Hepworth Wakefield is looking to recruit a number of Casual Visitor Experience Assistants to join our dynamic and enthusiastic Visitor Experience team as we present an exciting program of leading names in 2020 including Sheila Hicks and Hannah Starkey.

Our Casual Visitor Experience Assistants provide visitors to the gallery with the warmest welcome, interpret our displayed collections in the galleries and ensure the safety and security of our visitors, building and collections.

You will deliver a first-class visitor experience and ensure that our visitors are inspired to return.  If you have a commitment to providing customer service excellence and are excited about art and working with the public, we would love to hear from you!
