Retail 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.

We are currently seeking a Retail Assistant to work as part of our busy team operating a retail outlet at the gallery as well as on online shop. With relevant customer services experience, preferably gained in a retail environment, you need to be reliable and flexible with an enthusiasm for sales and excellent customer service to ensure visitors get the most from their visit.

The retail team operates over seven days and we are looking for someone whose shift pattern can include regular weekend hours. Overtime hours will usually be available and offered on a monthly basis in advance.
