Having completed her MA in Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London, American-born Lacey West then spent five years managing commercial galleries.

Lacey set up LWAI in 2010 to offer a professional recruitment service to employees and employers in the art community.  Ever since, LWAI has placed hundreds of carefully-selected skilled candidates from art backgrounds with clients who value our honesty and integrity.  

Thanks to our large and growing pool of well-qualified international candidates, and an extensive professional network, LWAI is committed to finding the right candidate for every job. While devoted to our local art community in London, LWAI is equally skilled in handling complex international briefs at all levels of employment thanks to the global experience and perspective of our team.

We also offer qualified candidates great opportunities to work in the art world and endeavour to help them fulfil their career goals.  With our understanding of the marketplace, relationships with our clients and our thorough pre-screening processes, we are well placed to ensure roles suit specific candidates so there is always a good fit.  By listening carefully and working tirelessly for our clients and candidates, we have exhibited time and again that we have recruitment down to an art.
