Job Description:
Southbank Centre is a world-famous, multi-venue arts centre in London, with a dynamic year-round artistic programme and an inclusive ethos. The UK’s largest arts centre, Southbank Centre was founded with the Festival of Britain in 1951. The site is home to the much loved Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Hayward Gallery, National Poetry Library, and Arts Council Collection of visual art. It’s a place where people experience world-class art, music and culture that stimulates, inspires, educates and amazes. We present as many free activities as possible alongside our ticketed events, and provide a unique educational offer to thousands of schools, young people and adults to immerse themselves in imaginative creative learning programmes all year round.

Hayward Gallery is the hub of visual arts activity at Southbank Centre and plays a vital role in the UK and internationally by presenting a wide range of ground-breaking art exhibitions, both at the gallery and through its nationwide touring programme.

The Hayward National Touring Programme produces exhibitions that tour to galleries, museums and other publicly-funded venues throughout Britain. Collaborating with artists, independent curators, writers and partner institutions, it develops imaginative exhibitions that are seen by up to half a million people in dozens of cities and towns each year. Acting as a laboratory of ideas and nurturing new curatorial approaches, the Touring Programme’s exhibitions feature a thought-provoking mix of subjects and artists, intended to complement and expand upon our partner-galleries’ programmes.

Exhibitions range in scale from the British Art Show - the nation’s largest and most ambitious survey of recent British art, organised in different cities around the country every five years - to international group exhibitions produced with guest curators, artists and writers. The programme also extends to smaller monographic print and photography exhibitions, touring to a variety of venues including galleries, libraries, universities, colleges and schools, arts centres and historic sites.

The Senior Curator will initiate, plan and oversee the delivery of the Hayward National Touring Programme, developing exhibitions that communicate effectively with a diverse public in venues across the country. They will work in partnership with galleries to develop future collaborations and secure venues for each exhibition. They will ensure the model for National Touring is sustainable and corresponds with the priorities of funding bodies, and will lead and manage a team of Assistant Curators to ensure exhibitions are presented to the high standards and are delivered within budget.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of planning, delivering and evaluating original exhibitions together with a thorough knowledge of the contemporary visual arts world both nationally and internationally. They will have delivered exhibitions both in London and the regions, have strong experience of developing partnerships and a flexible, creative and innovative approach to the development of curatorial ideas. Strong staff management skills and experience are essential, as are demonstrable experience of strategic planning and delivery, budget setting and management and a proven track record of writing for art related publications. The successful candidate will have a strong network of contacts of artists, curators and gallery directors throughout the country.

We present work for everyone and we welcome applications from everyone. We particularly welcome applications from people from a BAME background or those who are Deaf or disabled as they are currently under-represented in our workforce. If you wish to discuss reasonable adjustments for this role please indicate this on your application form and we will be in touch with you.

By attracting people to work for us from a broad range of backgrounds with diverse attitudes, opinions and beliefs we can continue to look at the world with fresh eyes and find new ways of doing things. We offer a stimulating and professional environment in which to work - and the pace and scale can be breathtaking. This is a remarkable place to work and our people require the ability to work in The Southbank Centre Way - to think, act and learn with speed and agility.
