About Us:

Contribute to the relaunch of two exceptional house-museums.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea owns and operates two of the most important house-museums in London: Leighton House, the former studio-house of the Victorian artist Frederic, Lord Leighton, which is currently undergoing an £8 million refurbishment; and Sambourne House, a rare example of the 'House Beautiful' style of the late nineteenth century. We are working towards a major reopening in October, when we will offer an enhanced visitor experience, including a new café space, Learning Centre and additional exhibition galleries.

The Role:

This is an opportunity to contribute to the success of two prestigious museums at a critical point in their development. Supporting the Marketing Manager, your initial focus will be on getting maximum value from the forthcoming relaunch. Building out from our new website, you’ll manage digital marketing campaigns across social media as well as more traditional print and press advertising to engage new and existing audiences.  As part of a busy and close-knit team you’ll need to be ready to turn your hand to almost anything, from liaising with our digital agency to helping with the on-site delivery of public events.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.

About You:

This is a great step up for someone with experience of digital and email marketing, ideally in the galleries and museums sector. IT literate, you’ll have good working knowledge of Microsoft Office as well as design packages such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Skills in photography and video editing would be a plus. Highly organised with good attention to detail, you’ll be self-motivated but also highly collaborative in your approach to work. Good written and spoken communication skills are essential.

Please apply online explaining how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification and job description. CV’s alone will not be considered for this role. 

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applicants.
