Job Description: 

The next five years will see a shift in Tate’s workforce to more closely reflect the UK population. This will require a step change in the attraction and selection of staff and the creation of more diverse talent pipelines for Tate and the sector. One of the ways Tate will achieve this is by creating apprenticeship opportunities that provide high-quality work-based learning experiences.

Tate is offering a unique and exciting apprenticeship opportunity within our Human Resources team to support our Diversity and Inclusion work. As the Access and Inclusion Administrator, you will complete a Business Administrator apprenticeship as part of your role, developing knowledge, skills and behaviours that are essential to business administration.

  • Tate’s values
  • Administration policies, processes and procedures at Tate
  • Business fundamentals
  • Record and document production
  • Basic project management
  • Managing your own performance

The apprenticeship will take at least 18 months to complete and the training is delivered by a provider at their site in central London. During your apprenticeship, we will support you by giving you time away from your job to complete your training and any necessary assessments or exams.

Purpose of the Job:

Diversity and Inclusion is integral to this vision and specifically to the delivery of our five-year objectives to:

  • grow audiences and membership that are more reflective of the UK
