Fabrica is delighted offer specialist placements to motivated and proactive students interested in working at a vibrant contemporary art gallery in the heart of Brighton:


The Gallery and Volunteer Coordination Placement is a 12-month placement, running November 2018 - November 2019. The successful candidate will spend 3 months with the office manager to gain an overall understanding of the organisation, followed by 9 months with the Gallery Manager to manage the gallery front of house and develop our volunteer programme. During your placement you’ll understand Fabrica’s mission as an organisation and gain in-depth and behind-the-scenes experience in Front of House management and how to run our volunteer programme.


“Being an Audience Development placement has provided a extra layer of learning that has enriched and supported my MA at the University of Brighton.

“I felt like the placement is really structured around my learning and development - every day has been different and thrown up new and exciting opportunities for me which have developed into projects beyond the student placement.” - Student Placement 2017


A passion for visual arts is essential as well as good customer care skills, excellent time management, a pro-active attitude, willingness to learn and the desire to engage with all aspects of Fabrica. Working independently and alongside the Office Manager, Gallery Manager and Front of House team in a busy and dynamic office, you will gain essential skills vital in developing a career in the arts.
