Association of British Orchestras

Marketing & Communications Officer

Music in the Round £21,420 FTE per annum (12,852 pro rata 0.6 FTE) Closing date 05 July 2022
Music in the Round was established in Sheffield in 1984 by Peter Cropper and the renowned Lindsay String Quartet, who pioneered the idea of music performed and listened to ‘in-the-round’. We are now the leading national promoter of chamber music, presenting hundreds of events in partnership with venues across the country to thousands of people of all ages, particularly in areas where there is little provision of professional live classical music, including Doncaster, Barnsley, Portsmouth and Barking & Dagenham. A highlight is our annual nine-day Sheffield Chamber Music Festival in the Crucible Theatre each May, as well as activity across the city in unusual venues. We are also known for our extensive Learning & Participation programme, which reaches around 10,000 children and young people each year.

Music in the Round is seeking a Marketing & Communications Officer to work closely with the Marketing & Communications Manager to grow and diversify our audiences, improve income generation and promote the organisation and its activity to stakeholders across the country. For this new role we would like to work with someone who is passionate about what we do, who will join us at an exciting time as we focus on fully integrating all our strands of activity with venues around the country.

We are looking to appoint someone who has some marketing and communication experience, whether professional or voluntary, who is able to work independently as well as part of a team. The role includes digital and social media marketing, relationship building and development, some print production and data gathering and collating, as we aim for our activity to be accessible to more people in more places. We would like to work with someone who is motivated, passionate and knowledgeable about music, with a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our work, and a desire and ability to work collaboratively with a range of people and partners.
