Association of British Orchestras

Communications Manager

Southbank Sinfonia at St John's Smith Square £27,000 to £32,000 Closing date 10 May 2021
The Communications Manager will be a new role in a new organisation. Southbank Sinfonia at St John’s Smith Square is the exciting coming together of two much-loved and well-respected music organisations: the orchestra - Southbank Sinfonia, and the venue – St John’s Smith Square. Now operating as one organisation, with a unified management structure, Southbank Sinfonia at St John’s Smith Square is a dynamic beacon of hope for classical music.

This role will see you playing a leading role in developing a communications and marketing strategy for the new venture, paired with a ‘hands-on’ approach to make it a reality. You’ll be working in a supportive, vibrant and fast-paced environment, collaborating with a wide array of artists (especially Southbank Sinfonia’s musicians), and embracing digital, print, and PR channels to share our story with the world.

We’re seeking someone who can think afresh about how we communicate classical music’s power, and who the audiences for it might be. You will nurture existing audiences, help to grow our family of supporters by working closely with the Development team, and boldly explore new ways to expand our reach.

You may have worked in communications with an orchestra, a venue, or another art form before. Equally, you might bring a blazing passion for music from communications experience elsewhere. What’s crucial is that you’re eager to think creatively to help us amplify classical music’s place in the world, and are excited to join us at the beginning of our new journey.
