Marketing Officer

Icon Theatre is looking to appoint a Marketing Officer to develop, create and deliver high quality and impactful marketing activity in alignment with our communication strategy, supporting all activity across the company’s artistic programme to raise awareness of our work, and helping us to increase, develop and diversify our audiences.

Icon Theatre empowers communities through theatre.  Inspirational, excellent new productions are at the heart of our work, co-created by professional and non-professional artists working together.  We are at a very exciting time in our development. In June 2020, Icon won a significant tender from Medway Council to lead the flagship ACE/DCMS funded programme Theatre31, engaging 2000 children and young people across Medway and Sheppey in performing arts activities by June 2022.

We are currently preparing for The Ballad of St John’s Car Park, a large-scale immersive show exploring activism and protest; If Not Now, an outdoor movement-based work with large-scale projection at Rochester Castle commissioned as part of Medway’s bid for City of Culture 2025; and a new outreach project in partnership with Open Book (Goldsmith’s University) engaging ex-prisoners and ex-addicts.

The Marketing Officer will work closely with our Executive Director, senior management team and external PR agency to develop and deliver project-based and ongoing marketing campaigns, including activity across multiple platforms, to increase audiences and diversity and raise the profile of our work.
