Waterhouse & Dodd, dealers in 20th Century and Contemporary Art and formed in 1987, and its sister company, Fine Art Brokers, a leading art advisory company, are seeking a Part-Time Assistant to start immediately. The companies are based in a small but well-appointed private dealing space on the Upper East Side near Madison Avenue. We also have a gallery in London.
The Part-Time Assistant’s role will be divided between general art gallery related admin (approx. 65%) and basic accounts related admin (approx. 35%). To be clear, this role is very much an admin role, but as with all work in art galleries there will be some more interesting work and involvement with art. The Assistant will work with the Manager in running the day to day aspects of the businesses, and less directly with the Director and the Consultant of Modern and Contemporary, and also with the owner of businesses, Ray Waterhouse.
The job will be for 12 – 15 hours per week, split over 3 days ideally, or 2 more full days. Remuneration will be fair and dependent on ability and experience. We are looking for someone who will stay with us for at least two years, given the amount of training involved.
