• I was the first point of contact for the galleries both in person, via email and phone. • I meticulously managed the gallery book stock and sales. • I learnt about each new exhibition and gave tours of the galleries to various groups.
• It was my responsibility to keep communication channels between the Curators and Information Assistants open and to feed back the public’s responses to the exhibitions. • I wrote start-of-show, mid-show and end-of-show reports according to a brief from the Curator, in a manner suitable for the Trustees. These communicated accurate information about the experience of the public in the gallery (visitor figures, complaints, compliments) coupled with a creative portrayal of the mood of the public, throughout the duration of the exhibition. • I organized meetings and took meeting minutes. • I managed the gallery tour-bookings database and tour logistics. • I regularly learnt new information about each new exhibition; communicated this information with different groups and individuals appropriately, altering my approach according to the client group. This varied from school children to university students, from families to academic experts. • I offered good service, was highly organized and demonstrated my ability to work effectively in a team.
