Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is London’s Creative Conservatoire, a world-leading centre for performing arts education, renowned across the globe for its forward focus and innovative programmes. We don’t just train our graduates for successful careers in dance, music or musical theatre – we inspire them to define their art forms.

An interim Head of Brand and Communications (Maternity Cover) is required to build and enhance Trinity Laban’s global reputation and profile in order to maximise income, and to increase awareness and support for our unique offer within the cultural and educational landscape.

Sitting within both the performing arts and the world of education, Trinity Laban is an amazingly rich environment. Our brilliant students, staff and alumni are making a huge impact on the world stage. Our world-leading educational practice – not only our higher education courses, but also a vast array of weekend, evening and summer courses – offers countless examples of innovation, excellence and success.

If you join us, then you will help to define and deliver our UK and international recruitment strategy, adding to our already diverse and talented student body, and take the lead on implementing the Brand and Communications strategy. You will have overall responsibility for online content, internal and external comms, press and PR, design, print, and most importantly the integrity and profile of the Trinity Laban brand. You will work closely with the senior executive team and Board of Governors, as well as leading a talented, hard-working team.

The ideal candidate will have previously held a similar role in the creative arts. You will be able to demonstrate strong strategic skills and understand international and UK student recruitment, together with successful leadership and management of marketing and communications functions. Experience and knowledge of music and/or dance is essential, as is the ability to represent the Conservatoire internally and externally.
