Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It’s fun seeing paintings from all over western Europe as well as the uk . And to be a part of that. Also being the face of the gallery as you are the first point of contact , your like an embassada for the Gallery . People come from all over the world and it’s fun talking with them sometimes in other languages but it is basic . However they love it when you welcome them in the language they understand . Over all it is a fun environment.

Good place to work

Good salary and benefits. Work life balance is decent. A fair bit of red tape and can be beaucratic and lack of diversity but overall care about their staff

Best place to work with peace of mind

National Gallery Management are very professionals. Very outstanding organisation to work for. I am very happy here, i want to leave due to family relocation but honestly I will missed National Gallery. I never had any single complaint since I had been working here unlike some companies. Definitely in future I might still comeback to work there. I enjoying the work flexibility, very good pay.

Pros

Job flexibility

Cons

Nothing at all.

A privilege

Working within an institution as old and prestigious as the National Gallery will always have its drawbacks and limitations, however once boundaries are established, I found it a lot easier to create work that suited the Gallery's restrictions but also fulfilled my conceptual artists practice. I found I had to compromise on some idea that I was more passionate about but I became indifferent when taking into consideration the necessary preservation tactics the gallery puts in pace to protect not only the art work but the building and anyone that comes to visit it. Overall it was an incredible opportunity to be one of the first young contemporary artists with work with a prospering program only recently initiated by the institution.

Pros

Such an amazing institution

Cons

Must work with restrictions

Great place to work.

An amazing place to work. You get to enjoy the national art collection everyday and learn something new about painting and old masters. I feel privileged to be working in such an amazing environment.
