About us
One of the world’s leading arts institutions, Tate exists to increase public awareness, understanding and enjoyment of British art from the 16th century to the present day, and of international modern and contemporary art. We have forged a global reputation for excellence.
Naturally, we also seek excellence in our people.
About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to support our Corporate Membership and Events team.
Working within the team, you will aim to optimise the income raised from corporate events at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, by providing a first-class sales response to all corporate enquiries, and developing long-term relationships with Tate’s supporters, corporate members and sponsors.
You will manage allocated corporate member accounts and corporate events, conduct client site visits and membership renewal meetings.
You will advise allocated corporate members, sponsors and other organisations about the management of events, including agreeing facility fees, recommending suppliers and offering advice about stylistic issues. You will also ensure that the terms and conditions relating to the safety of the building and its contents are met.
About you
We need you to have demonstrable experience of managing large-scale, income-generating events in a similar environment combined with experience of working with a range of event suppliers and building and sustaining relationships at all levels.
You will have first class interpersonal skills, and strong verbal and written communication skills. You will have the ability to work well both under your own initiative and collaboratively as part of a team, contributing expertise and leadership.
You will have experience of line management with the ability to lead and motivate other members of the team and aid development.
Sound knowledge of current health and safety and licensing legislation and sales and contract management experience would also be a real benefit to the role.
Our jobs are like our galleries, open to all
