Executive Assistant


The Broad’s mission is to make contemporary art accessible to the widest possible audience. Founded in 2015 on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, the museum offers free general admission and presents an active Program of special exhibitions and innovative live events, all within a landmark building designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Welcoming around 900,000 visitors per year, The Broad is a bustling public space, and serves as home to the Broad collection, one of the world’s leading collections of postwar and contemporary art, which continues to grow as new artists and artworks are added. The museum is also the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation’s worldwide lending library, which has been loaning collection works to museums around the world since 1984. To create greater public access, The Broad will break ground on a 55,000 square foot expansion in early 2025.

The Broad’s approach to the art museum experience has consistently attracted a young and diverse visitorship: over 60% of visitors identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) (compared to 27% at art museums nationwide). 60% are under the age of 35. 


The Executive Assistant provides executive level support to two leaders in the museum, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Chief Strategy Officer (CSO). They are responsible for managing the administrative needs of COO & CSO to ensure that their time is effectively allocated and that they have the information and materials needed to advance the priorities of their respective roles.

The Executive Assistant will perform a wide range of support activities including calendar management, reviewing, prioritizing, and managing incoming requests through email and other communication, travel arrangements, project support, preparation of reports, presentations, and other duties as required by a complex and evolving work environment. Candidates must demonstrate experience supporting senior executives or principals on multifaceted and sensitive issues, an ability to handle a high degree of confidential information, exceptional time management and organizational skills, and high standards for attention to detail and quality of work.

At The Broad, it is our mission to make contemporary art accessible to the widest possible audience. We strive to create a welcoming, inclusive environment for all our visitors and staff.  We actively seek candidates who share our commitment and values.
