The South London Gallery (SLG) is a locally, nationally and internationally recognized 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 SLG is seeking an HR and Administration Manager to work closely with the Deputy Director. The post holder will provide HR support across the senior management team and the gallery’s line managers, providing high quality, objective and robust generalist support to ensure the SLG attracts, develops and retains great people. There will be the opportunity to work on key projects such as our health and well-being strategy and embedding our new HR technology as well as work with the Deputy Director on wider administration and policy projects.
This is a true HR generalist role spanning all elements of the people agenda working in areas including recruitment, employee relations, coaching, training and development and employee engagement. The post-holder will lead on the ongoing development, delivery and review of the HR aspects of our diversity and inclusion policy and action plan.
This is a new post at the SLG. While it is a stand-alone HR role the post-holder will work closely with the Deputy Director and be supported by an external HR Consultant.
