A fantastic opportunity for a talented and innovative visitor experience professional to join Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in the newly created post of Visitor Experience Assistant Manager. You will lead the front of house staff and volunteer teams to develop a world-class visitor journey.
It is an exciting time to join Pitzhanger, the Manor is the Grade 1 listed ‘country’ house of Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London. Pitzhanger has just reopened to the public following a £12m HLF and ACE-supported building project to restore Soane’s original design and upgrade the adjacent Gallery so it can stage ambitious and challenging contemporary exhibitions. The conservation and the inaugural exhibition of mirror sculptures by Anish Kapoor have both received widespread praise and very positive reviews in the press and attracted large visitor numbers.
Reporting to the Visitor Experience Manager, this is a unique opportunity for an ambitious and driven candidate to build on the success of our reopening. Please see the job description for further details and how to apply.
