Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

Art and artistic activities are an important part of any therapeutic environment. We are proud of our art collection and use of artistic activities, and the value that they bring to the patient environment and staff wellbeing.

In this role you will be responsible for developing and maintaining our catalogue of trust-owned artworks across our hospitals in Frimley, Slough and Ascot.

You will work with the trust's art committee on acquisitions and other art-related matters and link with our wider community develop art, musical and dance projects as well as playing a key role on our arts committee on all related issues.

Last, but not least- you’ll be involved with developing the processes used in acquiring and displaying artwork on the hospital sites.

While you will need to work across the trust's main sites, you will be primarily based out of Frimley Park Hospital.

This represents a great opportunity for an enthusiastic and qualified person to gain experience and develop their skills in cataloguing, arts administration and planning. You will need to have a degree in art history, fine art, conservation or equivalent. You’ll also be familiar with electronic cataloguing systems and care of artefacts.
