This is an exciting opportunity to join the Leadership Team of Tate St Ives and advance its key institutional goals in the years ahead.

As part of Tate’s overall Five Year Plan you will take a lead role in developing Tate St Ives in the areas of your responsibility, while working in collaboration with colleagues across different teams.
