Director of Public Engagement

We now seek an exceptional individual to lead and oversee all our public-facing activity. Building on the pioneering work of our education and outreach team, you will ensure we continue to be at the forefront in engaging schools, the young, harder to reach audiences, and older adults. Working alongside our curators and exhibitions team, you will develop a public programme which enhances our special exhibitions, opens up the permanent collection to new audiences, and puts Dulwich on the map for a new generation of visitors. And above all this you will create and nurture our brand story, of the importance of art for the public and its ability to change people’s lives, and ensure that the Gallery is effectively promoted and its activities communicated across all media.

This is a unique opportunity for a special individual with a passion for art and for communicating its value to the broadest possible range of people. Whether coming from a background in marketing and communications, or public programming, or museum or gallery education, you will have excelled in what you do, and relish the chance to take on new challenges in areas you haven’t already covered. Above all you will value creativity, a fresh outlook, and the challenge of bringing excellence to the public in a world where methods are changing rapidly but the core purpose remains the same.
