Vacancy for Projects Administrator

Job title: Projects Administrator

Organisation: Barbican International Enterprises

Type: 1 Year Fixed Term Contract, Full-time (35 hours)

Salary: £24,480 – £27,820 per annum, inclusive of London Weighting depending on experience

Location: London, United Kingdom

We’re Europe’s largest multi-arts venue presenting a diverse range of art, music, theatre, dance, film, and creative learning events.

Barbican International Enterprises curate and develop exhibitions at the forefront of digital technology and innovation. Our curatorial approach explores the rapidly changing world we inhabit and our co-evolution with technology. We create unique collaborations across art, science, technology, and popular culture, offering a fresh, global perspective on urgent issues. We produce holistic environments in which contemporary art, immersive experiences, historical artefacts, design, videogaming, and music provide an unparalleled creative exploration of essential narratives. Our exhibitions differ from a traditional museum or art gallery experience. They occupy a physical space, but with predominantly digital and interactive works.

Job description

There is an opportunity to join our BIE team as a Projects Administrator, providing administrative support to the Department’s touring exhibitions programme.

We’re looking for someone with a knowledge and enthusiasm of art, visual culture and the exhibition world. You’ll have:

  • Excellent communications skills and aim to provide the highest level of service to colleagues and stakeholders
  • Previous administrative experience and proven organisational skills, ability to work well under pressure both independently and as part of a dynamic and supportive team

The BIE team is currently working remotely, and we have a blended model of part working in the office and part remotely. If you need flexibility in how you work, we’ll do our best to accommodate it.

We offer a wide range of staff benefits including a great pension scheme, season ticket, cycle to work scheme, free access to museums and galleries, discounts on retail, healthcare and on-site cafes and restaurants. You will have access to Employee Assistance Programme, trained Mental Health First aiders and City of London staff networks. We worked hard over the last year to make our office and public spaces Covid-safe and have rigorous safety measures and practices in place to support it.

We hope for the role to start in early January (subject to notice periods).
