Culture & Environment
Despite our long and proud history of 250 years we are by no means stuck in the past; we are a deadline driven business and things are constantly changing.
Christie’s was the first auction house to allow online bidding, and the first western auction house to be granted a licence to trade in China. Innovation is key to our success.
We are large enough to offer opportunities to our employees, but small enough for individuals to make a real impact.
Even if you walk through the door on your first day not being interested in art, we can guarantee that will change once you are surrounded by amazing art and objects.
