Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is London’s Creative Conservatoire, a world-leading centre for performing arts education, renowned across the globe for its forward focus and innovative programmes. We don’t just train our graduates for successful careers in dance, music or musical theatre – we inspire them to define their art forms.
It could be your job to tell the world all about what we do. The Head of Marketing and Communications is required to build and enhance Trinity Laban’s global reputation and profile, in order to maximise income, and to increase awareness and support for our unique offer within the cultural and educational landscape.
You will have the most incredible material to work with. Sitting within both the performing arts and the world of education, a conservatoire is an amazingly rich environment, and Trinity Laban is a particularly thrilling and diverse place, with many stories to tell. Our brilliant students, staff and alumni are making a huge impact on the world stage. Our world-leading educational practice – not only our higher education courses, but also a vast array of weekend, evening and summer courses – offers countless examples of innovation, excellence and success. Our inspirational programme of outreach and widening participation initiatives is second to none. Our vast programme of 400+ events each year – including international tours, appearances at major festivals, plus performances across London and within our own magnificent performing spaces – is hugely popular and influential. Our “Venus Blazing” initiative, running throughout 2018-19, is currently garnering national and international attention.
If you join us, then you will help to define and deliver our UK and international recruitment strategy, adding to our already diverse and talented student body. You will have overall responsibility for online content, press and PR, design, print, the integrity and profile of the Trinity Laban brand, plus marketing for our busy events programme. You will work closely with the senior executive team and Board of Governors, and will play a key role in supporting strong and effective internal communications, and in supporting external communications with key influencers within government, education and the arts.
To join our team, you will be educated to degree level and will have previously held a similar role in the creative arts. You will be able to demonstrate strong strategic skills and have an understanding of international and UK student recruitment, together with successful leadership and management of marketing and communications functions. Experience and knowledge of music and/or dance is essential, as is the ability to represent the Conservatoire internally and externally.
