Association of British Orchestras

Marketing & Communications Manager

Scottish Ensemble £30,000 Closing date 12 August 2022
Scottish Ensemble – one of the UK’s most inventive and forward-thinking classical ensembles – is seeking a new Marketing & Communications Manager.

Our reputation for innovative cross-art form collaboration, engaging filmic content, and meaningful work on well-being and mental health continues to grow, and this key role will help us maximise our impact and reach. You will be responsible for driving audiences (and box office revenue) across Scotland and beyond, for all our live and digital work.

The successful candidate will be part of a small, collaborative, and creative team, each of whom plays a crucial role in realising the ambitions of Scottish Ensemble.

We are looking for a post-holder who can both be innovative in how they talk about and sell our work, but also ensure that marketing strategies are underpinned by robust systems and evaluation. Supported by a Marketing Assistant and a Digital Content Producer, you will both conceive and deliver all core marketing activities in the organisation and so we are seeking someone who is a creative and fast thinker – someone who excels in a role that is both strategic and practical.

Equally importantly, we are looking for someone who identifies with and is excited by Scottish Ensemble’s mission and philosophy and who can relay this excitement to audiences current and potential. You will understand the motivations of current audiences but also be able to identify what the barriers to attendance might be for non-attenders.

If you are excited by this opportunity, we look forward to hearing from you. You can download the full job information pack on our website.

If you would like an informal chat with CEO Jenny Jamison about the role, please email jenny.jamison@scottishensemble.co.uk and we’ll be happy to arrange a call.
