Artist Assistants Required For Mural Project

I am seeking 2 artists to assist me with a mural painting project, located in the mental health wards of St. Ann’s Hospital in Tottenham, Haringey.

The project is based inside, at a maximum height of 305 cm. As an assistant, you will be assisting in the preparation of paint and brushes, painting prepared mural designs onto the sections of wall, and helping staff, visitors and service-users to participate during allocated periods of time.

The ideal candidates would be highly motivated, have excellent people skills (e.g. have experience facilitating workshops, volunteering etc) and be comfortable working at heights. Preferably you will have some experience in painting and working on a large scale, though this is not necessary.

The completion of a Working at Height Awareness online training course and a basic DBS certificate is required for this project. Both of these can be acquired online after I have confirmed the successful applicants and before the project starts. 

Assistants fees are £115 per day, on a freelance basis. The project will be running over four days, Saturday 18th – Tuesday 21st September.

I am preferably seeking assistants who can help me every day, however I will still consider your application if you are unable to do all of those days.

To apply, please send an email to with your name, an overview of your experience and skills which make you well suited to this opportunity, and confirming your availability for the dates of the project.

Applications close Wednesday 8th September, however early applications are highly advised. I will endeavour to get back to all applicants quickly, and I will be arranging calls with applicants as emails come in so I may fill the positions sooner.
