Vacancy: Photography Assistant – National Galleries of Scotland


The National Galleries of Scotland is home to one of the world’s finest collections of art, which ranges from the Middle Ages to the present day and includes masterpieces by Rembrandt, Leonardo, Warhol, Monet, Van Gogh, Botticelli, Picasso and Magritte. Our spectacular buildings house the world’s greatest collection of Scottish art, and a world-renowned collection of Scottish and international photography, which runs to 40,000 images.

It is our ambition to reach the broadest possible public, and in 2018 our exhibitions, events and displays drew more than 2.7 million visitors to our three principal sites in Edinburgh: the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

We regularly tour exhibitions and works from the collection, sharing them with partners across Scotland, and also lend our artworks to galleries around the UK and internationally. And, we are in the process of digitising the entire collection so that it can be shared online even more widely.

This is an exciting period of renewal for NGS, as we move forward with a recently developed strategic vision that puts our audience at the heart of what we do. We’re making it our mission to broaden our impact, matching our rich collections, expertise and creativity to the needs and wants of our visitors. We’re finding new ways to connect with more people, and creating an innovative, inclusive organisation that can meet the challenges of our ever-evolving world.

The National Galleries of Scotland aims to preserve, display and augment the collections for the enjoyment and education of the widest possible public and to maintain NGS as a centre of excellence.

Deadline: 21st November is the closing date 11.55 pm.
