In addition to the Director and the Marketing/Brand team, there are four areas within Artbank who work collaboratively in support of organisational objectives.
This team is made up of Art Consultants based in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. They are the key customer service agents for the art-leasing scheme. They work with government, corporate and private sector clients to support their engagement with/access to the collection. They undertake site visits, artwork selections, oversee artwork placement and installation and work with clients to ensure a high standard of customer service/satisfaction.
The curators are responsible for researching and delivering a range of activities that form Artbank’s broader program. This includes, exhibitions, publications, outreach events and talks and lectures. They are also responsible for presenting artworks to the Director for consideration for acquisition and the coordination and management of the collection. This includes addressing relevant display, transportation and conservation requirements of artworks in the collection as well as the accessioning and documentation of new artwork, loans to cultural institutions and the annual stocktake.
Registrars oversee all aspects of the transportation, handling, installation, and collection care of art objects under Artbank’s purview – largely drawn from our permanent collection and occasionally including works on loan for temporary exhibitions. Registrars are also responsible for maintaining collection records, condition checking, inventory, general handling and care of objects including reporting of conservation related issues, insurance, packing and shipping and documentation through the collection management system.
The business support team provides operational, finance and contract administration services for Artbank. Collectively, they are responsible for managing and coordinating all finance and administration matters, front of house services, infrastructure maintenance and support, procurement requirements and are the key point of contact for the Department on matters relating to finance, human resources and IT. Additionally, they coordinate Artbank’s government reporting requirements as well as supporting the annual stocktake and managing audit and risk requirements.
Any vacancies currently available to work with Artbank will be listed on our home Department’s employment page.
