Angelworld Family Office is looking for new interns in London

A Family Office Art Advisory based in Mayfair is offering a 2 months internship to a London based art student.

What we offer:

  • Possible position at the end of the internship
  • Experience within the art market
  • Formation in provenance research
  • Appraisal resources and knowledge

What are you going to do

We bring independent, expert advice and specialist services in all areas of the art advisory process and cut through the complex world of art to de-risk art investments for our clients.

We focus on understanding the client's main objective and strategy for collecting (whether for passion or investment or both) and then reverse engineer the process to achieve their key objective.

We facilitate art collecting, pending clients' brief and preferences, from studio purchases, private sales, auction representation, acquisition and collection management, as well as divestment.

When sourcing works for clients, we understand only too well the pitfalls of the art market, so its paramount to conduct due diligence not only on the artworks, but the people we work with.

Each artwork sourced undergoes a stringent due diligence process to establish the correct provenance and exhibition history, as well as researching all publications where the work has been mentioned, as well as checking all relevant databases to ensure the historical integrity of the work is intact before a work is offered to a client.

We also conduct a brief analysis of each artists' market trends and stake holders, as well as recent sale results in order to assess best acquisition price and negotiate on behalf of our clients, facilitating the transaction as discretely and swiftly as possible.

In essence, we save our clients time and money while reducing their transactional risk by guiding them through the opaque international art market purchasing process.

Office Duties:

  • Arrange and Coordinate the Calendar with regard to meetings and events.
  • Assist the Managing Partner with correspondence.
  • Assist or attend meetings as required
  • Maintenance of the databases.

Research Duties:

  • Research, file and document the art works that the office is offered.
  • Conduct preliminary internet search for any particular work of art
  • Conduct provenance research for every work of art the Managing Partner receives
  • Verify and check the exhibition history and the literature of the works.
  • Contact relevant institutions if necessary in the due diligence process
  • Be able to produce price comparisons and justify his/her evaluation opinion based on the results accumulated through the use of Artnet and similar platforms.

What we ask:

  • At least finished college BTEC levels
  • Excellent level of written and spoken English
  • Good understanding of art history
  • Interest in research
  • Ability to coordinate your work with the team
  • Ingenuity
  • Ability of stepping up to the challenge
