My role involved providing excellent and pro-active customer service based on guidelines, and tailored to the different visitors’ background in order to create a unique experience suited for each visitor. This included providing visitors with information about the current exhibitions and all aspects of Bonington Gallery including the building and facilities, forthcoming exhibitions, events and activities, and information about the local area.
