Photographer -– The Tate Year 3 Project

The Tate Year 3 project, led by a globally renowned artist, is one of the most ambitious visual portraits of citizenship ever undertaken, in one of the world’s largest and most diverse cities. Explored through the vehicle of the traditional school class photograph, the portrait will capture tens of thousands of London school children aged 7-8 in a milestone year in their development.
Across the academic year, a small core full-time team of Tate photographers will visit primary schools across the capital, champion the project and capture the photography to make up the vast exhibition. The roles are pivotal to one of the most ambitious all-schools London project putting tens of thousands of primary pupils centre stage.

These central roles will work directly to the Senior Curator for Contemporary British Art and artist in working to the project brief. They will be part of the small project team orchestrating the bookings and logistics and be the face of the project for schools pan-London.

The position will involve a combination of a high number of school visits each week to animate the project and take class photographs of Year 3 pupils (7-8 year olds) along with image processing and meticulous post-production.
You will have a degree level qualification in professional photography/imaging studies or equivalent and proven relevant experience in a photographic imaging environment. You will combine your strong technical skills with excellent communication and people skills and the ability to work flexibly within a team.

This position is offered on a fixed-term contract of 11 months starting on 3 September 2018 and ending on 31 July 2019. .
