Liverpool Biennial is currently seeking an experienced Operations Manager for a one-year maternity cover post, starting in December 2021.

This is a pivotal role in our dynamic organisation, which ensures that all Biennial operations and administration policies and procedures support the staff team and also our Board of Trustees.

You will have 2 years’ + experience in a similar role and be a confident communicator with the ability to prioritise tasks and work in a fast paced, and sometimes pressurised environment. You will be efficient in organising your own workload, and be understanding of, and sensitive to, the busy workloads of other people in a collaborative and agile team, who are all passionate about bringing outstanding contemporary art to a diverse audience.

You will also have a meticulous attention to detail and the ability to handle sensitive and confidential information with absolute discretion.

Whilst sector experience is not vital, a knowledge of and interest in contemporary visual art would be an advantage.

Application packs can be downloaded from this page or by email from jane@biennial.com

Closing date for receipt of applications is noon on 18 October 2021, and interviews are expected to be held in Liverpool and in person, on 29 October 2021.
