About the job


About Us

For 250 years, the Royal Academy of Arts has been run by leading artists and architects, and nurturing the next generation in the RA Schools. Our Collection tells their story, and our compelling programme of exhibitions and free displays invite our visitors to experience art and architecture from all over the world.

Through our employee training and development we aim to cultivate a safe space for every member of our staff. Our employee networks, equity and diversity groups, and our employee council are just a few examples of how we encourage all our colleagues to use their voice and their experience to influence the work we do.

The RA is exceptional because of its people. The institution’s independence has always promoted innovation and this can be found in all our work: from those working hard to bring our public programme to life, to those who work behind the scenes to further our impact.
