The Picture Hanger is seeking an experienced client facing art installer/picture hanger to help cover a staff shortage for the whole of March 2019, to help service our clients in private homes across London. For the right applicant this could lead to ongoing casual weekly work beyond the initial one month engagement.
One of our London installers is away during March. To see clients they travel across London via public transport with his gear in a backpack and tool case on wheels. Therefore you don’t need to have your own vehicle but we would consider an applicant who does. If you don’t have your own vehicle you won’t be required to carry ladders.
We are looking for a charming, down-to-earth professional with expert art handling skills who can walk into a client’s home, immediately engage with them, understand their requirements and provide an expert service.
For the most part our clients will look to you for advice on placement. You should be comfortable coming up with arrangements and suggesting ideal positioning in a room, considering the relationship between the existing artwork in the room as well as the décor and lighting. At times you will be required to create inspired picture or photo walls, often from quite disparate and eclectic mixes. Sometimes you’ll be positioning and hanging one artwork or mirror. Other times you will be required to arrange and hang a whole house or flat over a day or more.
You should be a problem solver, comfortable hanging a wide range of items on all types of walls, using a two point fixing method where possible. You will mostly undertake jobs on your own, though at times you will work with other members of The Picture Hanger team.
We will be provide you with a full hanging and fixing kit. We would expect you to supply your own hand tools, screw gun and hammer drill.
We will pay you for your travel time and time on site, as well as mileage should you be driving your own vehicle.
While the hours are ad hoc and casual we would expect to be able to provide you with a minimum of 60 hours of travel and installing time over March. Your weekly hours will be flexible, you can set the hours and days you would like to work but we would prefer you are available at least 3 full weekdays per week (and weekends if you’d like to).
You need to be able to use a digital calendar (Google Calendar or iCal for example) to recieve job bookings as well as WhatsApp for communicating with the admin team. So that we can service our clients effectively you need to be able to reply promptly to messages from the admin team, within reason.
We are a growing business and for the right applicant this could lead to ongoing casual weekly work beyond the initial one month engagement.
