Marketing & Communications Manager, Push the Boat Out
Deadline: Thu 23 May 2024
We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join our small team to create and implement our marketing strategy on a year-round, freelance basis.

Push the Boat Out: Edinburgh’s International Poetry Festival is a new platform for poetry, spoken word and performance which is entering its 4th year in 2024, and our first as a registered SCIO. It will take place in November 2024 in Summerhall, Edinburgh, with online and in person events. We also have a growing year-round programme including our monthly open mic, Rock the Boat, and plans for other regular events.

We want to recruit an exceptional candidate to create and implement our marketing & comms strategy. They will have the opportunity to create and deliver an exciting marketing plan, contributing to the growth and profile of one of Scotland’s most exciting new organisations all year round. Your work will ensure that the festival is enjoyed by the broadest possible audience and maintain high levels of engagement across the year.

We would like someone to start as soon as possible. The contracted period is to Feb 2025 but may be extended. You’ll be able to work from home and flexibly around your other commitments, though regular meetings will be required both remotely and face to face, and you will be required to be in Edinburgh in the lead up to and for the festival itself.

It is our intention that this post be year-round (funding allowing) but time required will vary considerably across the year. You will need to be more available from August to November.

Fee: £8,100 (£180/day – 45 days)
Location: Hybrid with regular meetings (including in person) and onsite during festival
Hours: Flexible to meet needs of festival
Contract: Freelance until Feb 2025
