As an art consultant my main responsibilities are; to source art for clients which they will love, curate the paintings in the gallery, organise private view events for artist exhibitions and oversee the day to day running of the gallery. I also make home visits with art for clients to help curate the piece in their own home. You need a mixed skill set for working in a smaller gallery as there are always 101 things to do. It is a fluid and adaptable job which has given me fantastic experience dealing with the general public and artists alike.
This is a role I undertook in the summers of 2013 and 2014. I was employed as an Activity Leader but was promoted to Activity Manager early in 2013. My main duty in this role were primarily to organise and lead a program of events for 250 international students from the ages of 11 - 18. This involved huge amount of organisational skills and fantastic communication skills. As an Activity Manager I also took responsibility for the welfare of these international students and therefore had a large amount of pastoral responsibilities.
I have worked with Blacks plc. part time since 2008. I started as a sales adviser and was promoted to Key Holding Supervisor when I was 18. My main responsibilities in this role were; oversee the day to day running of the shop, handle difficult customers, refunds/returns, banking and new start team training. This job supported me throughout higher education and I left in 2015 when I was coming to the end of my masters course.
