Vacancy: Marketing & Communications Officer

Could you be the superstar marketer (who also loves to make a good sale) that we are looking for?

Applications for this role are now closed

We would like to thank everyone who applied for the position, we will be in touch as soon as the applications have been processed.

Marketing for us (online and offline, the whole marketing mix) encompasses everything from 1-2-1 networking and audience development to revenue generation and customer retention. There’s no putting “digital” or “sales” into silos here, we take an end to end approach which means the marketing team’s work is fully integrated into everything we do: from concept to completion.  If that’s your philosophy too, then you may be just who we’re looking for. 

Thanks to a period of growth, The Art House is on the hunt for a talented marketer to join the team as Marketing & Communications Officer to help us promote, celebrate and sell the work we do here.

A passion for the visual arts is essential and you will know why creativity matters in a diverse world. Your approach to great marketing will be person-centred, honest and relatable. You will also know that at the heart of the most fun, creative and inspirational marketing campaigns are rock-solid strategies and data-driven decisions. 

You’ll be joining a vibrant team where marketing isn’t just left up to the marketing team. So whilst you’ll be working closely with your marketing colleagues and reporting to the Marketing & Communications Director, you will also be collaborating with people across the organisation (as well as external partners and artists) to design and deliver fully integrated experiences. 

We’re looking to appoint someone on a full-time, permanent basis, who could ideally start immediately. This role offers, and requires, flexibility but total remote working is not suitable due to the nature of our work. Oh, and we hope you like (or at least will tolerate) dogs, because we bring ours to the office. 😊

The Art House is an Equal Opportunity employer and the ethos of respect and compassion for each other and the communities we work with runs through everything we do.

We pay Real Living Wage, provide a Cycle to Work Scheme and a Staff Wellbeing programme. We are also a fun and interesting place to work and we think you’d enjoy it here.
