The Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art. Our mission is to increase the public’s access to and enjoyment of art – from ancient to contemporary, from watercolour to digital. Thanks to the success of our National Art Pass, our members and supporters, we raise millions of pounds to support museums and galleries across the UK, helping them to purchase works of art, train curatorial staff, deliver touring exhibitions, education and interpretation projects, and to make the most of their collections for their audiences.

The Student National Art Pass is a partnership between 22 Universities and the Art Fund, to encourage art students to engage with public collections through the National Art Pass. The programme is funded by a group of donors who want to connect the next generation of artists, curators and art professionals with public collections; over 8,000 students currently have access to a free annual Pass giving them free or reduced price admission. We are now looking for a skilled marketer with a background in higher education, but an interest in visual arts and museums, to co-ordinate the programme. Working cross-departmentally and with the internal project team, you’ll deliver a programme of work to ensure we build on the success of the free card and deliver a high-quality programme of associated activity.

To apply please submit an updated CV accompanied by a cover letter of no longer than one side of A4.
