The National Festival of Making is recruiting for a Marketing Coordinator to support the delivery of print and digital marketing ahead of and during the Festival weekend on 15th & 16th June 2019.
This is a fixed fee freelance role.
The National Festival of Making is a unique celebration of UK making, from the factory floor to the kitchen table. Taking place over two festival days, with long term projects running throughout the year, The National Festival of Making takes over the streets of Blackburn with music, markets, street food, art, performance, tours, talks and above all, an eclectic mix of making experiences for everyone to enjoy. Last year we welcomed more than 40,000 visitors to Blackburn to take part in a programme that celebrates the industrial heritage and contemporary future of the UK’s manufacturing & making industries. Artists in residence make original new work in industry from sculptures to soundscapes – shown throughout the festival weekend in Blackburn’s most historic and most contemporary buildings.
As the Festival moves into its third year we want to build a team with the specialisms required to continue to deliver this nationally relevant and ambitious event. Working within the framework of the Festival’s Audience Development Plan and Marketing Strategy we are looking for a Marketing Assistant to join our team to support the delivery of the social, digital and print media.
You should have excellent copywriting skills and a keen eye for detail. You will play an integral role in ensuring that we reach our diverse target audiences from the locality and nationally, driving visitation and building the Festival’s profile.
The National Festival of Making is a Community Interest Company with multiple stakeholders and partners – you will work directly with the NFM Directors and Festival Producers in a fast paced, friendly and ambitious team. The role is based within the Deco Publique office in Morecambe.
The deadline to submit an application for this freelance contract is 3rd April 2019.
