Many Gallery educators do some or all of the following, but the make-up of the job depends on the size of the gallery and programme: Some gallery educators work full-time and others part-time for particular galleries. Others are freelance and are employed to work on different projects by a range of different galleries or organisations. Projects can range from one day to more than a year. Many artists are employed in galleries on an occasional or regular part-time basis and combine this with time spent on their own artwork.

The number of gallery educators employed in a gallery varies according to its size.
For example there are:
2 at New Art Gallery Walsall
3 at Whitechapel Art Gallery
12 full time, 7 part time at Tate Britain
