Visitor Assistants (Part-Time and Zero Hours)

Kettle’s Yard is hiring for Visitor Assistants to grow our fantastic Visitor Services Team.

Visitor Assistants (VAs) are a public facing team which oversees the day-to-day security of the exhibitions and collections while also ensuring visitors’ experience of Kettle’s Yard is safe, enjoyable, accessible and informative.

This role functions across both the historic cottages and the newly built galleries. VAs are required to fulfil their dual function of safety and visitor engagement across both locations. No prior knowledge of Kettle’s Yard, Jim Ede, or fine art is required. Successful candidates will be given training and will also be expected to learn on the job through research, active engagement with the collection and exhibitions, and through self-guided study. The VAs will report into the Visitor Services Manager and work as part of the Operations/Visitor Services team.

As an equal opportunities’ employer, we encourage applications from all suitably experienced persons. We are actively seeking to diversify our staff and therefore encourage applications from minority backgrounds.

SALARY:
£17,079 pro rata

If you cannot apply using the on-line service, or if you need additional assistance please contact Visitor Services Manager Lilja Kupua Addeman at lka27@cam.ac.uk for a paper copy.
