Art Gallery Manager, Luxury Retail

DescriptionWe are seeking an experienced Luxury Retail Sales Manager to join this very exciting new contemporary Art Gallery venture in London!
You do not necessarily need to come from an Art background, but a passion/interest in art or luxury goods is a must, as well as a desire to learn quickly [you will receive training to assist you with this]
You will manage the gallery with a team of 2 Art Consultants, whilst driving sales on the gallery floor
Working to targets, you should have a proven track record in sales & have the ability to manage a CRM system, proactively calling clients to encourage new sales.

They are opening a further 2 galleries in other London locations in the very near future.
