Impressions Gallery is a charity that helps people understand the world through photography and acts as an agent for change. Established 50 years ago in 1972, we have grown to become one of the UK’s leading centres for photography.

We are seeking to appoint a Curator to work as part of our small and dedicated team in Bradford.

The Curator will manage our exhibitions and contribute ideas to the future programme, with opportunities to curate and lead on exhibitions that champion high-quality, risk-taking photography that is accessible to all. Other duties include management of our touring exhibitions, developing partnerships, implementing press and marketing systems, supporting our learning and engagement work, and assisting with the charity’s fundraising aims.

The successful applicant will join us at an exciting time; Bradford is UK City of Culture 2025. This is a game-changer, putting the city firmly on the national and international stage. Impressions continues to be a key partner and the successful candidate will play an active role in shaping our programme for Bradford 2025.

We are looking for a professional, ambitious individual with strong project management skills, who is able to balance multiple priorities. Applicants must have relevant photographic knowledge and experience of working within a professional visual arts environment.

We believe this role is an exceptional opportunity for someone with the right mix of experience, enthusiasm and initiative. The role is perfect for someone looking to take their career to the next level.

The salary for this role is £27,000 to £30,000 p.a. dependent on experience.

If required, reasonable relocation costs will be available for the successful candidate.
