Gallery Manager ( Chelmsford ) - Competitive basic salary with a realistic OTE £25,000 - £35,000
This is a great opportunity to work as Gallery Sales Manager based in this stunning Chelsmford Gallery.
Our client is a new entry into the market of art retailing. Rapidly expanding, with over 50 sites nationwide, now is a fantastic time to join a business that can offer not only a great working environment, fantastic earnings potential at all levels and a beautiful product to sell, but also some great career opportunities for future development and progression.
This is a commercial gallery selling contemporary original paintings and limited edition prints. The art work is gorgeous, and covers a range of styles. It is a great product to sell!
Your role is a combination of Sales and Gallery Management. The sales process is professional and consultative - you will lead your small team by achieving your own sales targets, and helping them to achieve theirs. Setting high standards of customer service and client management, you and your team will react to the footfall; proactively use and add to the Gallery’s client database; network for new clients; hold prestigious events and promotions with international and well established artists.
You will have target driven sales experience coupled with a warm, outgoing and vibrant personality. A general interest in Art is helpful, but you certainly don’t need to be an expert. Excellent training is provided, including a four day Art Academy, which is their in-house training.
This is a fantastic company to work for - it is dynamic and successful, and strong career opportunities exist for the right candidate. They set reasonable and achievable targets, and uncapped commission is part of your package. The inspirational owner of the company, who set up the business, is still very much a part of both the recruitment and training process.
Not surprisingly, weekend work is required, and a driving license is preferred as they offer home approvals/consultations.
