The Wallace Collection is a collection of the fine and decorative arts formed in the eighteenth and nineteenth century by four successive Marquesses of Hertford and the 4th Marquess’s heir Sir Richard Wallace. It was left to the British Nation in 1897 and opened as a national museum in June 1900 in Hertford House, a grade II listed building in central London. It is managed by a Director who reports to a board of Trustees appointed by the Prime Minister and is financed by a combination of grant-in-aid from central government and self-generated income; the museum receives around 450,000 visitors per year.

The Wallace Collection is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.


Full-time, 2 Year Fixed-Term Contract

The Wallace Collection is delighted to announce that it will be continuing its programme of appointing a two-year position combining museum experience and Spanish art-historical studies in memory of Enriqueta Harris Frankfort. Before her death in 2006, Dr Harris Frankfort was a leading authority on Spanish painting in the UK, particularly the works of Velázquez and Goya. The Wallace Collection is proud to be collaborating with the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH) in the appointment of this role, and is extremely grateful for their on-going support.

This post is intended to strengthen the curatorial team and specifically its research activities in the field of Spanish art, but also to provide a professional start in the curatorial field. It is envisaged as a training opportunity for someone with little experience of museum work but with a formal academic training, and is designed to encourage an early-stage researcher to engage with museum objects and produce new research.

The application deadline will be midnight on 15th September 2021.
