Job Description & Person Specification:

Buxton International Festival (BIF) is one of the UKs leading arts events taking place in July each year; a cultural celebration of the very best opera, music and books taking place in the Peak District. 

The Festival produces three operas alongside a series of concerts given by many leading British and international musicians, and a literary series featuring leading writers and thinkers. Our new Artistic Director, Adrian Kelly and new CEO, Michael Williams have created a new vision for Buxton International Festival and together with a brand new communications strategy we plan to engage a new younger audience with our 5 under 35 ticket; encourage green travel from London through our travel partnership with Virgin Trains; and increase support and awareness from local audiences with a brand new audience development strategy. 

BIF is seeking a Freelance Digital Marketer who will support to develop and implement BIFs digital marketing campaigns to engage new and existing audiences, increase box office income and significantly enhance our online profile. 

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a creative digital marketing role, preferably in a senior role, and will be experienced in website administration; social media and e-newsletter creation/scheduling; digital advertising; digital audience development; analytical reporting and evaluation. In collaboration with the Marketing Manager, you will create and deliver imaginative marketing campaigns; engaging target audiences, driving ticket sales and income targets for Festival events, and supporting web traffic and email acquisition targets. 

The ability to deal with multiple projects simultaneously; working with content management systems and digital analytic tools; and the ability to work in Buxton are essential for this role. 

Demonstrable interest in the performing arts is desirable.
