COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

Full time 

Salary: £27,000 to £32,000

40 hours per week, with TOIL scheme for additional hours

DEADLINE:1pm on Monday 10th 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.

To apply for this position, please submit a CV and covering letter, explaining your suitability for the role, to Georgia Dimopoulou georgia@southbanksinfonia.co.uk. The deadline for receipt of applications is 1pm on Monday 10th May 2021. If you have any questions about the role, please contact Georgia by email.
