Music Theatre Wales are looking for an outstanding communicator to be our new Communications & Marketing Manager to manage the development and implementation of the communications and marketing strategy of our work.
To be successful in this role you will be a creative and strategic thinker, with demonstrable experience and skills in arts marketing, audience development and community engagement.
You will understand digital and traditional marketing, be confident in a PR and communications role and have the skills to lead on our digital and social content. You will be the brand champion and bring together all communications, internally and externally under one clear identity working to raise the profile of MTW within Wales, the UK and internationally. You will lead artists, audiences and communities to our work.
At Music Theatre Wales we are committed to achieving greater equality as an organisation and as an employer, and we aim to ensure that no one receives less favourable treatment as a consequence of having a protected characteristic. We believe that this is a matter of social justice and human rights, and that quotas don’t help to effect change unless cultures change within organisations. Change is happening throughout our organisation – in the work we make and the people who make it; the people we reach; the board of trustees and our staff.
As MTW is located within Wales, with a strong commitment to our Welsh language policy, the ability to communicate in Welsh is highly desirable for this position. The successful applicant will be encouraged and supported to develop sufficient Welsh language skills to drive and oversee our bilingual marketing and communications.
