The World Symposium on Choral Music (WSCM) is an 8-day festival of concerts, workshops and masterclasses.

The New Zealand Choral Federation (NZCF) has won the rights to host the next symposium in Auckland in July 2020 and is looking for a Marketing & Communications Manager with a proven track record to help meet delegate and audience targets.

At the same time, NZCF is in need of assistance with ongoing communications with members during the latter half of this year. The position would be split between WSCM2020 and NZCF until January 2020 when it becomes specifically focused on WSCM2020.

Reporting to the Festival Manager, WSCM2020 and  the Chief Executive, NZCF, you will be part of two small, linked, focussed and enthusiastic teams. You’ll be responsible for the marketing of a symposium that is culturally-rich, contemporary and innovative. WSCM2020 is an exciting opportunity to showcase New Zealand’s diverse culture and to bring the very best of the choral world to our stages. 

You will bring a thorough understanding of all facets of marketing and will be particularly savvy in social media and digital marketing, with a sound understanding of online analytics. Excellent written and verbal communication skills including copy writing, computer and CRM skills, a strong attention to detail and proven ability to build and maintain outstanding stakeholder relationships are required for the role. 

A strong connection with the arts and familiarity with a member-based organisation will be highly valued.

Based in Auckland, initially you will work from your own home office, with some flexibility in how you manage your 40 hours per week.
