Job Description (max 500 words):
Are you a photographer with an interest and commitment to providing technically accurate, high quality and engaging images in a cultural heritage setting?
Do you have relevant, professional experience with a thorough understanding of photography from lighting to colour management and file formats?
Would you feel equally comfortable shooting in a fully equipped studio as you would be covering a busy event across Tate’s Galleries? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
Experience in printing & conservation imaging is advantageous but not required; you should be able to capably adapt and transfer your knowledge to new processes, paying meticulous attention to detail. You’ll manage your work from capture to upload, ensuring images are delivered at the highest standards and to specified deadlines.
This position is offered on a 2-year fixed-term contract.
Successful candidates will have access to a range of benefits, including 25 days annual leave entitlement, rising to 27 days pro rata after 3 years of service; an extra day off for your birthday each year; a cycle to work scheme; opportunities for blended and flexible working; free access to Tate exhibitions and other museums and galleries; Life Assurance; and a ‘Defined Contribution’ pension scheme with generous employer contributions. Successful candidates who are already members of the Civil Service Pension Scheme or have recently left the scheme may be eligible to remain as members of this scheme instead.
