Gallery Coordinator

We are currently looking for a Gallery Coordinator to join our team. The position is for a two-year contract with options to extend. The role of Gallery Coordinator carries many challenges and also offers great rewards. The position is an outstanding opportunity to be part of a growing enterprise that is looking to build on its successes and establish new markets in Australia and overseas, and at the same time increase its visibility, potential and operations in the local market. The role carries many exciting professional development opportunities for the successful applicant.

The Gallery Coordinator plays a key role in the running of the organisation, being responsible for revenue and sales relating to the Centre’s art gallery and its associated programs, including touring exhibitions, publications, merchandising, copyright, financial record-keeping and Gija staff training.  Although the position of Gallery Coordinator will largely be based in the gallery, cross over into other program areas may be required from time to time. In this regard, as part of a talented and flexible team, it is desirable that applicants also have some experience of Indigenous culture and cultural programs and experience with social media.

Benefits Include:

  • Salary sacrifice arrangements available
  • Housing and electricity supplied
  • 5 weeks annual leave after one year
  • Reasonable relocation expenses
