Tate is looking for a Marketing & Communications Manager with a special focus on local and regional marketing. This position has been developed to be a driving force in Tate’s central goal to expand our reach and relevance amongst new and diverse audiences.

The role: You will be part of a high-performing, warm and friendly team, responsible for marketing the world-class offering at Tate St Ives. From events to our families’ programme, and from our critically acclaimed exhibitions to all the amazing art you can see in our Tate Collection galleries, you will be responsible for bringing the full Tate experience to life through imaginative, exciting and effective marketing campaigns. At the heart of all you do will be a mission to bring new visitors through our doors, with a particular emphasis on local and regional audiences.
