Tate aims to be the most artistically adventurous and culturally inclusive global art museum. We deliver this aim through activities in our four galleries across the UK (Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives, Tate Britain and Tate Modern), our digital platforms and collaborations with our national and international partners.

As Collection Registrar (Displays) you will be part of the Collection Management team and involved in the display process from start to finish. You will spend varied days co-ordinating and documenting the movement and installation of art works from our collections, prioritising their care.

A skillful registrar, you will have proven experience of working with a major museum collection including experience of exhibitions or displays and collection documentation. You also have good knowledge of national museum standards for transportation, handling, packing and storing works combined with an understanding of British government indemnity and commercial insurance and experience of art transport procurement.

Your excellent organisation and planning skills, experience of supervising teams and complex tasks and the ability to solve problems pragmatically and through negotiation, prioritising the care of works of art sets you apart. You have a positive, versatile attitude with the ability to work well under pressure and meet deadlines whilst retaining excellent attention to detail. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills will also mean that you communicate diplomatically and effectively at all levels, both internally and with external contacts.

Above everything, you will be excited by the challenge that this rewarding role allows you to play in the realising of Tate’s programme.
