Association of British Orchestras

Marketing Manager

Aurora Orchestra Starting from £30–£40k Closing date 21 July 2022
Aurora Orchestra is recruiting for a Marketing Manager to oversee our communications with local, national and international audiences.

Since its creation in 2005 Aurora has established itself amongst the world’s leading chamber orchestras, with a distinctive and vibrant brand built on a marriage of quality and creativity. As we expand our live and digital programmes following the pandemic, the orchestra is looking for a skilled and imaginative event marketing specialist to help us offer the richest experience of orchestral music to the broadest possible audience.

Aurora’s programme already reaches a much wider audience than is typical for classical music. But we know we are currently just scratching the surface, and there is huge potential for further increasing engagement with our live and digital programmes. Our new Marketing Manager will help us build on Aurora’s reputation for innovative marketing, bringing the quality and impact of our communications up to the same level as our work on the concert platform.

The appointee will work closely with Aurora’s Chief Executive and creative team to set and deliver the orchestra’s marketing strategy. Undertaking a mixture of creative production, audience development and marketing/branding functions, they will generate imaginative content reflecting Aurora’s pioneering brand, as well as overseeing the orchestra’s wider relationship with audiences. They will work closely with artists, management colleagues, external venues and other stakeholders, developing an exceptionally broad range of experience and professional contacts.

Applications close at 5pm on Thursday 21 July.
