We have a fantastic opportunity for a creative person who is passionate about the arts and working with young people. 

For over 40 years Wac Arts has provided 30,000 young Londoners who face the greatest barriers to participation with the opportunity to grow their skills and confidence through the performing arts.  We believe that in 2022, poverty, ethnicity, disability, and post code are still preventing young people from experiencing the arts. By joining our growing team, your marketing skills will drive the recruitment of thousands more young people on to our classes and workshops every year. 

This position is ideal for someone who relishes the hands-on work of designing and delivering effective marketing campaigns in a broad-based role. It is suitable for both recent graduates with marketing (or related degrees) or people with some experience of sales-driven marketing, ideally in education or training. 

The job involves regular weekend working in line with the timetable for the Arts Programme. You must be passionate about the work we do and able to connect with young creative people.
