We’re hiring: Communications and Marketing Officer

Arcola Theatre is looking for a new Communications and Marketing Officer. Could it be you?

We’re looking for a creative and proactive individual who will use their energy and ideas to support and contribute to the Communications and Marketing team.

This is a hugely exciting time to join Arcola. We have recently transitioned to producing or co-producing almost every show in our programme, enabling close artistic involvement with the work we stage. In the last year we have started to tour our productions for the first time (New Nigerians and Little Miss Sunshine). We also presented Arcola’s first ever production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August this year – Until The Flood at the Traverse Theatre – to universal critical acclaim. Our autumn season, which opened in September, includes a co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Next year will be our 20th anniversary, and we will be marking the occasion with a year-long season of productions, including brand new commissions from major playwrights.

This is also an exciting time to join Arcola’s Communications and Marketing department. We have committed to significant investment in the department, enabling us to:

  • refresh our activity with new leadership from a Head of Communications and Marketing;
  • expand our capacity with three full-time members of staff;
  • incorporate public relations into our in-house activity, with support and training from an experienced external PR agent.
