Job Description

Director of Marketing & Communications, English National Ballet

Founded in 1950 as London Festival Ballet, English National Ballet has always been a pioneering company that takes world-class ballet to the widest possible audience, wherever they are and whatever their means. Under the artistic directorship of Tamara Rojo CBE, ENB has introduced ground-breaking new works to the Company’s repertoire whilst continuing to celebrate the classics.

We tour annually to UK towns and cities, and prestigious venues worldwide including the Bolshoi and Paris Opera, and with our digital platforms, Ballet on Demand and BalletActive, we are able to reach a truly global audience.  Through our creative learning and engagement practice, we also build innovative partnerships to deliver flagship programmes to around 40,000 participants a year.

The Director of Marketing & Communications is an important role for ENB, helping us to better understand our existing audience and engage with new ones.  You will play a key role in the delivery of our marketing strategy cross performance (live and digital), engagement and development streams  Part of this will include overseeing a brand refresh, as well as continuing to invest in our digital strategy as we continue to welcome back existing and new audiences and participants.

We are looking for a creative, inclusive and commercial leader who can inspire a great team of marketing, digital and communications professionals and work collaboratively with our team of directors to deliver our new four year plan, which will capitalise on our international profile, artistic reputation and the transformational facilities at our new 93,000 square foot home in Canning Town.  While experience of performing arts is useful, what is most important is that you share our passion for ballet and want to work for an inspiring, hard-working and fun company at the top of its game.
