Executive Assistant to the Director, The Wallace Collection

Description

The Wallace Collection is an internationally outstanding collection which contains unsurpassed masterpieces of paintings, sculpture, furniture, arms and armour and porcelain. Built over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by the Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, it is one of the finest and most celebrated collections in the world.

So that it could be kept together and enjoyed by generations of visitors, the collection was given to the British Nation in 1897. It was an astonishing bequest and one of the greatest gifts of art works ever to be transferred into public ownership. Today, our job is to maintain, research, and inspire the public to love and understand the Collection.

OVERALL PURPOSE AND ROLE

The EA provides effective support to the Director of the Collection ensuring the smooth running of the Director’s Office and providing a professional and welcoming face to external contacts.

The EA schedules recurring activities as well as reacting to the changing needs of the day to day running of the office, projecting a professional and confident image even when under pressure.

In addition the EA acts as the main point of contact for the office of the Chairman, the Board of Trustees, Senior Management Team (SMT) and to all WC departments as far as they relate to the Director’s Office.

The Wallace Collection is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
