Shetland Arts are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated part-time (30hr/week) Marketing Officer to be part of a small, dynamic and resourceful team working to raise the profile of the charity locally and nationally, promoting our work and events to a range of audiences including funders, partners, and of course the wider public.

Through PR and marketing communications, including digital communications and content marketing, the team publicises Shetland Arts’ projects, events and venues. We work on a range of exciting campaigns, ranging from venue hire to film and event promotion to supporting local artists and raising awareness of Shetland Arts’ outreach projects.

As Marketing Officer your role will include working closely with our Sales & Marketing Manager and design team on the planning, organisation and implementation of clear, timely and two-way communication through print, broadcast, digital and face-to-face channels.

You will have the ability to write engaging, tailored copy for a variety of audiences, and be comfortable working to tight deadlines and managing schedules, while using your own initiative and maintaining attention to detail at all times. You’ll be comfortable with best practice copy-writing and content creation, both on and off line, confident managing content on websites and social media and have some experience of working with design software.
