AGOG Staff Position – Additional Information
The Art Gallery of Golden has been Golden’s destination for visual arts since 2008. Our Studio Gift Shop displays and sells the creative efforts of more than 150 local and regional artists. In addition, our staff work closely with local and regional artists to annually curate 8 to 10 monthly exhibits in the gallery. All of this is a great attraction for the more than 12,000 visitors — both local and out-of-town — who come through our door to browse and buy each year.
The majority of our staff have been with us for many years. With one of our staff retiring, we have an opening to come join us at AGOG. The ideal candidate has a background and a love for the visual arts and has experience providing exemplary, friendly customer service in retail sales with experience with point-of-sale systems. Microsoft office skills are essential.
Part-time shift work:
- To start, we are offering a part-time position staffing two 7.0 hr shifts per week on Friday and Saturday. We project that additional shifts will also be offered from time to time as staff flex their time for family and holidays.
- Pay is competitive and supported by an annual health contribution.
The ideal candidate …
… has a general background and enthusiastic interest in the arts and an eagerness to learn from our staff and our artists
… enjoys engaging with visitors and customers in a friendly, supportive way
…has past and transferable experience with retail point of sale systems including inventory input/controls
… is competent in Microsoft Office Excel and Word
You will be working independently, but also within a staff team. It’s very important to be able to communicate well and thoroughly with team members: follow through on the efforts of the previous staff person’s shift and effectively hand off to your team member working the next incoming shift.
Generous training and ongoing mentoring is provided to support your growth in the position and help you to develop additional skills.
Working cooperatively with others in the team to share information, remain current and up-to-date, and to gain and maintain knowledge of our artists, their creative work, our gallery programs and services helps make AGOG a great place to visit and work in.
