The RHA is developing a volunteer programme for the gallery and a Seeks Front of House Assistant. This is an opportunity for interested individuals to gain exposure to the workings of a major art gallery and contribute valuable visitor services to a non-profit institution.
Front of House Assistants are the first point of contact the public has at the RHA. Volunteers would be required to familiarise themselves with our exhibitions, be able to offer assistance or answer any questions from visitors, answer the phones, deal with any sales from the bookshop and sales of artworks, invigilation on larger exhibitions when required, ensuring the exhibitions are all in good order; the spaces kept tidy and other administrative duties. Candidates should possess good interpersonal skills and have a pleasant phone manner. Fluency in spoken and written English is essential. Some basic computer knowledge would be desirable and an ability to take initiative and contribute actively and positively to the gallery. Candidates should ideally have an interest in contemporary Irish & International Art. Volunteers are asked to give at least one day per week for a minimum of three months and a maximum of six months. The front of house daily shift is from 11am-5pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Wednesdays 11am – 8pm and Sundays 12 – 5pm.
Deadline: 27 July 2015
Further information and interested candidates should submit their CVs with a covering email:
