We’re currently recruiting for the roles of Development Lead (part-time) and Marketing and Communications Manager

20th Century Perspectives

These are key roles in the Scottish Ensemble team and both will play an important part in our organisation’s growth and development over the next few years as we move forward from our 50th anniversary celebrations.

Development Lead is a newly created role. This is a part-time, flexible opportunity with a majority of home working a possibility, alongside attendance at events. The post holder will be responsible for nurturing and growing relationships with Scottish Ensemble’s network of supporters – individuals, trusts / foundations and corporate, and ensuring that we meet associated income targets.

The Marketing and Communications Manager is responsible for driving audiences (and revenue) across Scotland and beyond, for all our live and digital work. This is both a creative and a strategic role. We are looking for a post-holder who can both be innovative in how they talk about and sell our work, but also ensure that those creative marketing strategies are underpinned by evaluation, consistent reporting and robust systems.

Both roles will be supported by to-be-recruited assistant-level positions.

The successful candidates will be working as part of a small, collaborative, non-hierarchical and creative team, each of whom plays a crucial role in realising the ambitions of the organisation.

For both positions we are looking for people who identify with and are excited by Scottish Ensemble’s mission and philosophy. You will be an exceptional communicator, be that verbally or written, and someone with a strong track record in your field. You will be a creative and fast thinker, and someone who will excel in a role that is at once strategic and practical. You will also be someone who is excited to work in a non siloed environment, and able to contribute more widely than simply within the confines of your role description – bringing to the team ideas and suggestions that benefit all areas of the organisation’s work.

If you’d like an informal chat about either role please contact Interim Chief Executive William Norris.
