Marketing Manager
Institute of Contemporary Arts
For 75 years, the ICA has used its buildings and platform to celebrate the arts, influence culture, and bring people together to share radically progressive ideas. As we face some of the most complex ecological, economic and social-justice challenges ever seen, both nationally and globally, the ICA’s critical approach is needed more than ever. Over seven decades, the ICA has staged numerous ground-breaking exhibitions, legendary concerts, and its cinema continues to be a major voice in independent film. Today, our programme – across exhibitions, performance, cinema and film, theatre, music, architecture, design – is dedicated to issues of racial justice, social justice, and the championing of voices at the forefront of progressive culture. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious marketer and communicator to be part of a team making a significant impact at the ICA as it moves towards re-establishing itself as a membership organisation and delivering several important strategic initiatives. The main responsibilities of the Marketing Manager are to develop and implement the marketing strategy with the oversight of the Head of Communications, spanning the ICA programme, and its membership scheme and other commercial activities. This includes the managing of the ICA’s e-newsletters, which are a central form of communication for the organisation. This role will also track and report on public engagement and the success of our marketing and audience development strategies.

The successful candidate will lead on the development and implementation of MarComms campaigns for key partnerships, exhibitions and events. They will also manage the Communications Assistant, including objective setting, regular reviews, and oversight on tasks-at-hand
