A vacancy exists in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Communications Team for an enthusiastic and creative person who is keen to gain hands on work experience in the corporate communications team, specifically in the areas of public relations and marketing. Whilst the person appointed will be a member of the Communications Team and would therefore gain valuable experience in all areas of communications, public relations, marketing and advertising, there are a number of specific project(s) which the person may be responsible for. These include:
Brand Awareness Campaign
The Arts Council has identified certain demographic areas and age-groups where our brand awareness needs to be improved. The person appointed would be responsible for devising and implementing a marketing campaign that will effectively target these areas of low brand awareness eg the youth market.
Arts Council Annual Conference
The Arts Council holds an annual conference, which raises the profile of the arts and encourages arts professionals to engage in debate about the arts in Northern Ireland. The person appointed will gain valuable experience in organising and marketing a major event.
Regular Proactive Public Relations Activities
The Arts Council regularly produces newsworthy stories highlighting the arts and artists at home and abroad. The person appointed will be expected to develop, with support from the Communications Team, news releases, good PR photography and media liaison skills that increase awareness of the arts and the work of the Arts Council in national, provincial and online media.
The person appointed will be expected to support the media monitoring function within the department. He or she will help to update and maintain media and photographic databases and develop media analysis skills.
The applicant should be a current undergraduate on the Communications, Advertising and Marketing (CAM) degree course.
