“We’re looking for a dynamic person to make a difference in theatre”
Theatre Administrator – Marketing
Red Rose Chain is a great success story in Suffolk. Founded by Artistic Director Joanna Carrick in 1990, the company has grown to produce an incredible body of first-class theatre and life-changing community work. Red Rose Chain’s unique ethos puts a life changing community programme at the centre of the work of a professional theatre company.
Our participants, many of whom have disabilities and hugely disadvantaged backgrounds, take part, volunteer and help to run every aspect of the company.
The central part of the role is marketing our professional productions and promoting the community work. You will also contribute to the day-to-day smooth running of our busy office at Gippeswyk Hall and venue management at The Avenue Theatre and Theatre in the Forest.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join the team of this very popular, community-focused theatre company.
You will gain wide experience of theatre administration and marketing, supported by the Producer and Artistic Director and working alongside the rest of the team. The role will be dynamic and will change according to particular productions and projects.
You will have contact with participants and the creative teams working on the productions.
We are looking for someone who can help to take our well-regarded, established organisation to the next level and make a positive contribution to the theatre and community work. You will assist in the smooth running of the organisation and contributing to its future growth.
We are looking for someone to take on a broad range of marketing and administrative tasks including:
Delivery of our Marketing Strategy
Working to and co-ordinating our Marketing schedule
Increasing sales, marketing and our online presence
Press and media liaison
Working with our volunteer marketing team
Reporting on ticket sales
Assisting with Press Nights
Receiving and managing calls
Box Office Management
This is initially a 12 month fixed contract at £17,000 pa.
Normal office hours are 9am till 5pm. However, as a theatre company, many events and tasks take place outside of office hours and so flexibility is required. This is particularly likely during the opening of a new production.
To apply, please send a cv and covering email to David Newborn at firstname.lastname@example.org by 04/10/19
From volunteering as part of our marketing team, to freelance work or becoming a member of one of our weekly workshops, there’s a place for you at Red Rose Chain.
Starting out as a little known team of artists, we’ve now become a multi-skilled production company combining grass-roots community work with the highest artistic quality.
