Have you ever dreamed of being a public speaker, one of the most lucrative and hard to break-into fields in the world?

Is the idea of being trained to be an Auctioneer something you would enjoy?

If your ambition is to be a professional public speaker, entertainer, or auctioneer, this is the job for you!

Park West Gallery has brought the experience of collecting fine art to more than 2 million collectors around the world since 1969, through art auctions and art sales on over 100 cruise ships and in major cities worldwide. Our mission is to create an entertaining, educational and welcoming environment that ignites a passion for the arts and offers an incomparable collecting experience.

We offer a job opportunity unlike any other. With a world-class Training Academy where you will learn sales, public speaking, and auctioneering skills, ongoing career development, and the ability to progress in your career and run your own program, we have proudly developed the careers of thousands of Independent Contractors throughout the years, enabling their success as Art Auctioneers and beyond.

As an Art Sales Associate, you will live and work onboard a cruise ship. While assisting the art team and program onboard as an Associate, you will get on-the-job training through our Auctioneer Development Program with guided mentorship, with the goal of eventually leading your own program as Art Auctioneer. Through auctions, seminars, and other events, you will engage audiences in the world of art, helping them to gain appreciation and understanding.

After a career onboard, some of our auctioneers go in our land auction, VIP Sales, and shoreside management departments.

Specific Job Duties:
• Consultative sales conversations with cruise ship guests

Successful candidates will receive company assistance in obtaining a C1/D Visa. Please note that the cost of Visa is reimbursable and requires a process that takes approximately 2 weeks.

Compensation consists of a variable base salary with additional uncapped commissions. Living costs while onboard are minimal (meals, transportation and room/board are covered by company).
