The Registrar Department is a specialist role, responsible for the shipping, packing, framing, condition, storage and documentation of the artworks in care of the Gallery.

Working hours are Monday to Friday, from 9am to 6pm, with an hour lunch break each day. Saturday assistance and evening work may be required, and any additional hours worked will be compensated with time off in lieu.

Tasks will include, but not limited to:

● Support the Registrar department with documentation of works of art, shipments, customs paperwork and condition reports
● Assist with the movement and coordination of artworks for exhibitions, loans and art fairs
