Job Details

Disability Arts Online is looking for someone with strong experience in arts marketing and communications to lead on the planning and delivery of our communications strategy, raising the profile of the organisation. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious individual with an interest in access or disability to put their own stamp on the communications output of an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation. The role is offered part-time at 3 days per week (0.6 FTE).

Disability Arts Online is a small but exceptionally dedicated organisation that supports disabled artists and the wider arts sector. We are a content powerhouse delivering high-quality editorial, a monthly podcast, films, not to mention user-generated blogs. We produce a programme of 10 events a year (mixture of both live and online).

We already have a large and highly engaged following on social media, with over 14,000 Twitter followers, a 6,000-strong Facebook group and an Instagram following built from nothing to nearly 2,000 in a little over 18 months. We want someone who can take our communications to the next level and showcase and celebrate the work we do to a wider audience.

The successful candidate will also benefit from flexible working patterns and the opportunity to work from home. With responsibility for smooth communications internally and externally, some travel will be expected as part of the work.

With strong digital skills and enthusiasm for communicating with people via social media, the Communications Manager will focus on reaching audiences and deepening engagement. They will manage communications for all our social media accounts, advertising and events.

The Communications Manager will work on ‘Lead’, the Arts Council funded Transforming Leadership project, enabling our new Digital Influencer to deliver exciting digital content that opens up access to Disability Arts Online’s offer, particularly to neurodiverse and learning disabled audiences.
