Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is seeking a Consultant with experience in a wide variety of e-commerce activities to advise and support CFCCA on investigating commercial income opportunities.

This initial strategic support may extend into supporting the Business Development team with implementation, to include related agreements / documentation.
