Black Country Touring (BCT) addresses the lack of opportunities for local people to access theatre, dance and film across Sandwell, Walsall, Wolverhampton and Dudley. We operate an urban touring scheme for live theatre, dance and film, make productions and projects born out of diverse stories of local life and empower and upskill children and young people through our work in schools.
All of BCT’s work is focused on creating opportunities for local people of all backgrounds and ages to be actively involved in programming, promoting and creating a diverse range of performances and events.
Collaborative working is key to everything that we do and this is also integral to how we work as a team – sharing ideas, being open to possibilities and supporting each other in achieving our goals.
The ideal candidate for this role will be dynamic, agile and enthusiastic about engaging audiences who are often under-served by arts and culture. They will be an engaging storyteller, a visual thinker and a natural collaborator, who understands, and is able to harness, the latest trends in social media and online culture. This is a new role within the organisation: an exciting opportunity to shape and evolve the role, grow our reach online and support the development of our emerging and innovative digital programme.
Previous marketing and communications experience is not a requirement: we will consider your transferable skills, experience and enthusiasm.
BCT is committed to developing a more diverse workforce. We actively encourage applications from people who are currently underrepresented in the cultural sector and are representative of the diverse communities of the Black Country, specifically people from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds as well as people who identify as (d)Deaf, Disabled and/or LGBTQ+. We guarantee an interview to anyone who identifies as one or more of the above, who meets the skills and experience criteria in the job description.
Full Time (37.5 hours per week), permanent, hybrid working (a mix of at home and at the office)
Salary: £23,080 – £24,982 depending on experience
