In the heart of Chelsea situated moments from London’s famous Sloane Square, Cadogan Hall is one of the capital’s most iconic venues.
We now have a vacancy for a ‘Head of Sales and Marketing’ which will take responsibility for our box office, marketing and audience development functions and also form part of our senior management team.
Cadogan Hall hosts over 340 events a year in our main hall (capacity 950), foyer and breakout spaces and is proud to have the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as its resident orchestra.
Staging and promoting a diverse programme that embraces live performance of every type, we support a vibrant classical, jazz, world and contemporary programme with leading national and international concert promoters.
The Head of Sales and Marketing will take responsibility for maximising box office revenues and leading on audience development. The high turnover of unique events requires exemplary management of the marketing workflow executed with creative vision, commitment and flair. Supporting this, our box office function needs to remain dynamic, ready to deliver our services across multiple platforms.
Cadogan Hall works increasingly in the digital space with more than 70% of ticket sales now online. Finding and engaging with new audiences online will be an increasingly important part of the role.
This job demands broad marketing experience at a senior level and a sound knowledge of box office practice. It is likely that this will have come from within the receiving venue sector but this is not essential. Excellent people management skills and budgetary control are pre-requisites.
We have exciting plans to develop Cadogan Hall – building on the success of the past thirteen years – to further develop the cultural landscape of Chelsea and the wider catchment within the nation’s capital.
This is a rare opportunity to join a dynamic organisation supported by a long established, fresh thinking and dynamic commercial board.
Closing date: Friday 6 July
