JOB POSTING – July 2018 – DIRECTOR OF MARKETING & PR (full-time)

The ideal candidate will be fast and efficient, organized and calendar-motivated, imaginative and bold, as well as independent and ambitious. An annual marketing and PR plan will be a primary initial task as the company is developing new branding strategies and expanding programmatic offerings. The Director’s public relations tasks includes overseeing press releases, doing pitches to local media, coordinating interviews with artists, staff, and media, and supplying marketing collateral to press. Marketing tasks include social media maintenance; developing a new website, and then maintaining and updating the site; developing graphics with in-house and independent graphic designers, as well as some digital assets in-house; creating postcards/ posters / digital logos for arts events and special events with designer(s); making programs for events; creating content for and managing email ewsletters; coordinating photo shoots for events and choosing photos for media and in-house usage, as well as video. Events are often in the evenings so nighttime hours (for meeting press or photographer), and occasional weekends are part of the job.

Graphic design experience a must (experience with Adobe products preferred). Excellent communication and writing skills essential. Nonprofit arts experience is not necessary. Also, we welcome experienced applicants but would consider “greener” candidates who are vision-motivated and eager to build their own shop from the ground up.

As of now, these tasks have been shared by staff members. Moving forward this department will be supplemented by intern support in year one, with the goal of adding a second position in year two. It is a full-time position with generous benefits including paid time off, health and dental, as well as direct deposit, and cell phone.

Please submit resumes and a writing sample (from a marketing project or a press release) to employment@southernrep.com. Qualified candidates will be contacted for work samples and/or interviews. Position open until filled.
