This is a crucial role, with key responsibility to drive income generation through the craft programme and retail within the gallery shop.

Located in the Vulcan Building at Gunwharf Quays - a premium retail outlet, with restaurants and cafes on the waterfront at Portsmouth Harbour - the gallery also delivers its programme and special projects at other sites in and around the City.
