Over the last two years Leeds City Council has opened the newly refurbished Leeds Art Gallery, a £6m Museum Discovery centre last year and is due to open its new £23m Leeds City Museum in Autumn ’08. A curator is sought to be a part of the reshaping of one of the country’s major museum and art gallery services that puts collections and people at the heart of its education, cultural and social inclusion goals.

Based in the newly refurbished Leeds Art Gallery you will be responsible for the development, care, access and interpretation of the designated Fine Art collections including “probably the best collection of 20th century British Art outside London” (The Times). You will also play a key role in the development of exhibitions, events and educational activities in the area of Fine Art to appeal to all sections of the community and visitors to the City. Experience of working in collections management in a similar environment and of planning and delivering exhibitions and events with a wide variety of audiences is essential. This is a full-time position, salary £26,067 - 27,594 p.a.
