The South London Gallery (SLG) is a locally, nationally and internationally recognised centre for contemporary art with an acclaimed and award-winning education programme. Founded in 1891 as a purpose-built gallery, the original site has expanded to include the Clore Studio, a flat for artists in residence, and a café (since 2010); an artist-designed garden (opened in 2016); the Fire Station (opened in 2018); and Art Block, a space for local children and families on Sceaux Gardens estate.
Since its first expansion in 2010, the gallery has grown from welcoming 25,000 visits per year to over 150,000. The SLG is embedded in the local community with a programme that reflects art practices today, supports artists and commissions new work.

The postholder will be responsible for the effective internal operations including the gallery’s administrative, facilities, financial, personnel and legal functions.
