Marketing Manager

This is a fantastic opportunity for a brilliant marketing/communications lead to join and really make an impact in an established and ambitious arts organisation. The right person will bring strong experience and the energy and drive to lead the communications and marketing function of The Ark.

This is an existing role but will be joining the organisation at an exciting moment of transformation for our audience engagement. At the start of 2024 we received targeted multi‐year philanthropic support to enable us to invest in our commitment to transform the way that we engage with children. As a result of this significant investment, the Marketing Manager will manage a recently appointed full‐time Digital & Audience Development Coordinator who will support the delivery of the marketing and communications plan.

The role is offered as an initial 2-year fixed-term contract, with a six-month probationary period, with the intention of extending subject to annual funding and is based at The Ark’s venue at 11a Eustace St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2.
