We are looking for an experienced Marketing Manager to develop and deliver a Marketing & Communications Strategy for AV Festival 10, which takes place from 5 - 14 March 2010 in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and Middlesbrough. AV Festival is an international festival of electronic arts, featuring visual art, music and moving image. This is a fixed-term contract for services, from June 2009 to the end of March 2010. The indicative fee is £9,000. You will work closely with the Manager of AV Festival, and oversee all aspects of marketing management and delivery for AV Festival 10, in line with the festival's budgets and objectives.
There have been three successful editions of the festival to date, in 2003, 2006 and 2008. AV Festival has developed into a regular biennial event of international standing and has a strong network of collaborators across the North East of England and around the world. AVANE became a regularly funded organisation (RFO) of Arts Council England in 2008-09 in recognition of its artistic excellence, international profile and regional engagement. With a new Director and Manager in post, the development of a three year business plan, and planning currently underway for AV Festival 10, this is an ideal moment for a creative and dynamic marketer to take the lead in delivering a strong marketing presence for AV Festival 10.
Closing date: 10am, Monday 8th June - late applications will not be accepted.
Interviews will be held in Newcastle on Wednesday 10th June.
