Working for the National Gallery Company

The National Gallery Company Limited is the 'trading arm' of the Gallery. We're closely linked with the Gallery - we are part of the National Gallery Trust and give all our profits to the National Gallery - but working for us isn't quite the same as working for the Gallery itself. Our commercial focus means staff are just as likely to come from a business background as from the art world, so you're unlikely to need a formal art education… but it's useful if you know your Monet from your Michelangelo.

When it comes to location, our shops are all in the National Gallery while most of our other work takes place in a modern office block behind the Gallery's Sainsbury Wing.

Details of any National Gallery Company job vacancies will be advertised on this page, along with contact details and information about how to apply.

We do not accept speculative CVs or applications. Please only apply for specific posts that match your skills and experience. Our site is updated regularly and displays any current vacancies we have.
