12 month FTC


The Gallery’s Legal and Procurement team reports to the Gallery’s Director and is responsible for providing advice and support across the Gallery in relation to a wide range of commercial and compliance issues. This includes providing suitable contracts for Gallery’s activities from commercial activities and sponsorship to picture acquisitions and partnerships with other cultural organisations, advising the Gallery on regulatory requirements in relation to public procurement and data protection, instructing external counsel and advising on disputes.


As part of the National Gallery’s legal and procurement team, you would report to the Head of Legal, where you will have the opportunity to develop your own practice and gain experience of working in a legal environment within the cultural sector in one of the world’s greatest galleries. The role will report to the Head of Legal, and work alongside the existing Solicitor, the Procurement Manager, and the Data Protection Manager.

As an in-house lawyer at the Gallery, you would therefore deal with an interesting and varied portfolio of work including negotiation and drafting of a wide range of contracts for the Gallery and its trading company in relation (but not limited) to sponsorship, events, licensing, and commissions as well as digital and web projects; providing advice on policies and compliance; maintenance of precedents and guidance notes for users; and devising and delivering in-house training. This is a rare opportunity for a lawyer wishing to move into or develop their experience in the museums and galleries sector.
