Vacancies

Current vacancies for both Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in Hertfordshire and the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds are listed below.

Assistant Art Technician

Closing date: 1 August 2017

Full-time

Henry Moore Studios & Gardens

Salary: £17,000 + up to 12.5% employer’s pension contribution.

We are looking to appoint a budding art technician with an interest in sculpture, to join our Collections & Exhibitions department. Working as part of a small and dedicated team of technical, registrarial and curatorial staff, you will assist with the care of the Foundation’s collections (predominately sculpture and works on paper) and help to deliver a busy programme of exhibition installations and loans in the UK and overseas. The role requires a flexible self-starter, who will take just us much pride in keeping the workshops tidy as preparing works of art for a world class exhibition.                         

The successful candidate will have some experience (paid or voluntary) of working in a cultural organisation, ideally in a technical or operational capacity. You may already have a qualification in museum studies, history of art/fine art, however more important is a ‘can do’, enthusiastic attitude and enjoyment of learning and working as part of a team. Competency in working with tools and willingness to undertake manual work are essential, as is the flexibility to be able to travel and undertake occasional evening and weekend working (for which time off in lieu will be given). A mix of ‘on the job’ and formal training will be provided.

If you are excited by this opportunity and, having read the job specification, you have the credentials to meet the requirements of the role, we would be delighted to receive an application from you.

Accommodation is available at a modest rent if required.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: 10am on Tuesday 1 August 2017

INTERVIEWS: Wednesday 9 August 2017 at Perry Green, East Hertfordshire.

Finance and Administrative Assistant

Closing date: 31 July 2017

Part Time (28 hrs/week)

Henry Moore Institute, Leeds

Salary: £13,600 - £15,200 p.a. (£17,000 - £19,000 pro rata) + up to 12.5% employer’s pension contribution.

We seek to appoint an important member of our support team to deliver efficient financial and administrative assistance to ensure the smooth running of the Henry Moore Institute. The post holder will be responsible for processing financial transactions in Quick Books accounting software; researching and coordinating applications for funding opportunities; and assisting with building management and day to day administration.

The role requires a highly organised and numerate individual with an eye for accuracy and ability to work to deadlines. The successful candidate will have at least one year's experience in a finance and/or administrative capacity. Knowledge of accounting software is desirable, however training will be given in Quick Books; computer confidence and an efficient ‘can do’ attitude are more important if you would like to join our team.

If you are excited by this opportunity and, having read the job specification, you have the credentials to meet the requirements of the role, we would be delighted to receive an application from you.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: 10am on Monday 31 July 2017

If you meet the person specification and are interested in this position but are on holiday during the above period, please contact Terry Millson to discuss your availability before continuing to complete an application form.
