Marketing & Communications Officer — Lichfield Garrick Theatre

Salary: £24,793.60 per annum
Contract: Permanent, full-time (40 hours per week)
Work Location: Lichfield, England

Bouncing back strongly from Covid, Lichfield Garrick Theatre has just had its most successful year on record, reaching over 110,000 people with its programme of drama, dance, music, comedy, family shows and cinema.

Now, with significant recent renewal within our Board and a new Chief Executive in post, the charity is gearing up to invest in ambitious plans for the future. These include expanding the number and range of shows on offer to attract an even bigger, more diverse audience to the venue, and significantly stepping up the theatre’s community engagement and talent development activities.

Having an effective marketing & communications team has been central to the venue’s recent success and will be key to achieving the growth envisaged for the next few years. That’s why we’re currently looking to boost capacity in this area by adding a new Marketing & Communications Officer role to our existing team of Head of Marketing & Sales, Marketing Manager and Digital Marketing Officer.

We’re seeking a dynamic marketing & communications professional to join our team, with a focus on elevating the theatre’s profile through delivering compelling messages about our charitable activities and wider programme to a range of audiences and stakeholders.

The post holder will also manage and develop our social media channels and lead on marketing & communications support for our community engagement programme and membership and fundraising schemes.

If you’re ready to embrace a challenge, thrive in a fast-paced, creative environment, and like the idea of playing a part in our mission to put the Garrick at the heart of the cultural life of communities across Lichfield and further afield, then we’d love to hear from you!
