The Playhouse Board wishes to recruit a digital marketing specialist to the Board of Trustees. This Digital Marketing specialist will act in an advisory and stewardship capacity as a guardian of The Playhouse and its people. They will offer advice and ideas for best practice in digital marketing at an exciting time for The Playhouse which recently appointed a Digital Marketing Officer to work alongside its Communications Director.  The Playhouse launched a new website in November 2021 and alongside the development of a new broadcasting infrastructure have striven to use technology to bring narratives to life in ways that motivate, inspire and inform our audiences, participants, partners and community.

Ideally the candidate will have a passion for the arts and the power of digital story-telling, as this is a voluntary role. The person would need to be familiar with effective digital marketing strategies, website optimisation, analytics, and email marketing (e.g. to drive ticket and membership campaigns), measurement and reporting, benchmarking and potentially, digital distribution of plays on the international theatre scene to support existing plans around touring major productions internationally.

The new Board member will be a team-player, generous with their time and ideas and a creative thinker with the desire to nurture creativity in others. Ultimately they will be someone with a curiosity and desire to explore new digital trends offering their expertise, ideas and energy to The Playhouse and its staff, artists and audiences.
