The postholder will be responsible to the Gallery Manager and support her in the day to day running of the shop. The Gallery Assistant will need to work independently and will have a particular focus on developing and enhancing the gallery’s online sales.  The role will also work closely with the team of volunteers who work in the gallery as well as some out of hours work on events that the gallery hosts such as art fairs.
