Sales Assistant

Deadline to Apply: November 31

As Dubai’s center for photography, GPP is a highly multifaceted business, offering visitors a photography gallery, a fine art printing lab, a selection of film and photo books, and, most famously, Dubai’s widest array of photography workshops. We are seeking a part-time (~16 hrs/week) Sales Assistant who can answer inquiries related to all aspects of GPP and assist clients when signing up for a workshop, placing a printing order, and purchasing artwork from the gallery. Training will be offered on how to manage these inquiries, but foundational knowledge of photography will be needed to build upon.

This role is very dynamic, so the ideal candidate will be someone who prefers to be moving around and interacting with people, rather than sitting at a desk in their own world. As it is a client-facing role, we seek someone who has a friendly and patient personality, strong written and verbal communication skills, as well as passion for photography.

Required
  • Comfortable with professional language in correspondence
  • Ability to independently manage time without constant supervision
  • Amicable and personable disposition
  • Interested in photography and eager to learn more about photography
  • Available to work Saturdays
Desirable Skills
  • Native Arabic speaker
How to Apply

At GPP, our small team makes a big impact. We work hard, but we’re also not foreigners to having fun at work! Interested candidates should send their CV to work@gulfphotoplus.com along with a cover letter in the body of the email. The cover letter should communicate why you feel you are suitable for this role as well as a story about a photography mishap that you've experienced!

GPP Photo Week Volunteer

Deadline to Apply: January 15

Every February, all of Alserkal Avenue comes alive with photography exhibitions, workshops, talks, panels, screenings, and more! GPP Photo Week is the region’s longest running photography festival, and putting it on requires an exceptional team of volunteers! To be considered, please fill out this form to be considered.

Summer Internship

Deadline to Apply: April 15

Past interns have supported us by revamping our workshop presentations and handouts, researching local and international photography trends, drafting blog posts, and supporting shoots for social media content. We expect measurable contributions from our interns, not coffee runs, which ultimately makes it a more rewarding experience for the both of us.

If you'd like to be considered, get to know us better by reading our full website, attending some of our events, and even consider taking a workshop. When you’re ready, write to work@gulfphotoplus.com with a CV and cover letter that tells us how you would like to contribute. Candidates will be contacted for an interview in early May.
