About the Role:

SAINSBURY CENTRE

Creative Coordinator 
Ref: SC4661

Salary on appointment will be £25,138 per annum, with an annual increment up to £28,759 per annum.

The Sainsbury Centre is a world-renowned art museum with one of the most celebrated collections in the UK. It is famous for creating a unique perspective on how art can foster cultural dialogue and exchange. The Centre was founded in 1973 by Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury, built on the gift of their extraordinary collection to the University of East Anglia and housed in Sir Norman Foster’s first ever public architectural masterpiece. Foster’s radical design for the building creates a unique experience for world-class art to be seen and enjoyed in a totally different way to the usual museum. Art is taken off the walls and placed on pedestals of equality in what was the largest open plan gallery space in the country when it was created. The vision of our founders was to encourage visitors to have a fundamentally unique museum experience at the Sainsbury Centre. We live by this ambition today and currently our visitors come from all over the world to enjoy a beautiful and dynamic arts landscape across three floors of indoor gallery space and a 20-acre sculpture park stretching out through surrounding meadow, forest and lake. It is a wonderful place to work.  

The Sainsbury Centre has ambitious plans for our future programme with a series of six-month seasons addressing societal challenges and fundamental questions facing humanity. The Creative Coordinator will play a crucial role in supporting the delivery of this wide-reaching programme that encompasses exhibitions, touring exhibitions, publications, Sculpture Park projects, interventions, collection displays, artist residencies and other special projects.

In this role you will work closely with the Curators, Registrars, Conservators and Technicians and liaise with external contractors to coordinate all their activities. You will be the central contact for the management of projects, overseeing their practical delivery by developing and monitoring schedules.

You will be educated to degree level or equivalent qualification or have equivalent experience preferably in the arts. You will have experience of project management and recent experience of working in a museum, cultural organisation or art gallery supporting the development and delivery of exhibitions and/or cultural programme. 

The post is available from 8 July 2024 on a full-time, indefinite basis.

  • 34 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and University Customary days (pro rata for part-time).
