The postholder will have had significant experience in a similar role and exemplify a range of skills and expertise to inform and shape their leading role in designing and implementing activity that extends the reach, influence and activities of the Gallery, nationally and internationally. A key focus of the role is around growing and developing existing and new audiences – especially those based in our local area, as well as continually assessing and improving our outreach and engagement platforms (print and digital).

The Senior Marketing and Communications Manager reports directly to the Director of Communications and works collaboratively and insightfully to ensure the team develops effective, stand-out marketing, communications and Audience Development Strategies in line with the Vision, Mission and Values.

The Senior Marketing and Communications Manager line manages the Communications Assistant and works closely with the Gallery’s designer, media buyers, production suppliers and web development agency, often being the first and main point of contact. They will also liaise regularly with the Visitor Relations team to ensure questionnaires (ACE mandated as well as bespoke) are carried out regularly to gain insights into our audiences, and that resulting data is shared cross organisation for analysis and action. Likewise, the Senior Marketing and Communications Manager will also be integral to the implementation and development of our new CRM system (Spektrix), supporting organisational understanding and usage of this platform to further inform and develop audiences.
