We’re today starting our hunt for the newest members of the Scottish Ensemble team, as we recruit for two brand-new roles: Development (Fundraising) Assistant and Marketing Assistant.

Development Assistant is a part time (3 days per week) role that will play a pivotal role in growing our family of donors and supporters. You’ll work closely alongside our newly appointed Development Lead, ensuring timely and engaging communications with our Strings Attached members, helping to craft events for them and being crucial in the researching of new fundraising opportunities for the organisation. In doing so you’ll play a vital part in helping make ambitious projects like ANNO (pictured) happen. You’ll be an energetic people-person with a real eye for detail and someone who LOVES to run a drinks reception or two.

Our Marketing Assistant role is also part time (4 days per week). You’ll be working with our Marketing and Communications Manager on a huge range of projects, both on and offline, ensuring we maximise ticket sales and awareness and also, importantly, making sure that audiences have a fantastic time engaging with us. Our ideal candidate will be a really exceptional writer and someone who can talk about what we do in a fresh and engaging way. You’ll have an eye for (good) design and get a thrill out of seeing the result of your work – a sold out show.

Both roles are suitable for those seeking their first or perhaps second jobs in the arts, who’d work well as part of a busy, and dynamic team and who are excited to get involved in realising the artistic programme of one of the UK’s most innovative classical ensembles (that’s us).

You’ll find full information about each role and how to apply on the job packs linked below – but note the following important dates:

Deadline for applications: 5.30pm on Monday 27 September.

Interviews: Will be held on 29 & 30 September.

If you’ve any questions at all about these roles, please drop Will a line in the Scottish Ensemble office.
