We’re looking for an experienced Events Manager to join our small busy Events Team to assist with the planning and delivery of our varied programme of events at Serpentine. 

We offer our Gallery spaces for hire to a wide variety of clients including art sector organisations, Corporates and private clients. During exhibitions, this is usually in the evening for drinks receptions, dinners or for breakfast events. There are also opportunities between exhibitions to hire the gallery space for longer periods of one day or more. The iconic annual Summer Pavilion is also available for hire between June and October. The Magazine Café is attached to Serpentine North and is managed by a third party who work closely with us to create both income generating events and a unique backdrop to internal event offerings.

You’ll have experience of managing both live and virtual events and delivering an exceptional supporter experience. You’ll be organised, calm under pressure and collaborative in your approach and you’ll have the ability to build relationships both internally and externally to engage effectively with a wide range of stakeholders.

This is an exciting opportunity to work for an internationally renowned gallery. You’ll be hands on, happy to pitch in and enjoy working in a dynamic environment where no 2 days are the same.
