Illicit Ink are recruiting for a volunteer marketing manager

Volunteer Marketing Manager

Closing date: June 10th 2014

(Approx 15-20 hours per month, including attending gigs and meetings)

Illicit Ink is a group of volunteer writers and performers who run awesome spoken word shows. Every month we gather to champion the strange, the beautiful, and the ever-so-slightly sinister in our two alternating events, Underground and Skyground.

We’re looking for a tough but lovely volunteer to handle marketing and press for our events. We want someone who loves and supports what we do and can put a few hours a week aside to help us by:

  • Reviewing our current marketing and social media strategies
  • Writing and disseminating press releases, listings information and our monthly newsletter
  • Managing our blog* and updating our website with marketing-related content
  • Researching and undertaking other marketing-related activities
  • Attending events and committee meetings.

*The marketing manager wouldn’t necessarily have to write the blog, but would be responsible for finding others to provide content.

Essential skills and attributes

  • Experience of writing creative copy, preferably press releases
  • Previous marketing experience, such as creating marketing strategies and campaigns
  • Computer literacy
  • Strong attention to detail
  • A love of constant deadlines
  • A friendly, fun and helpful attitude.

Illicit Ink volunteers work from home and attend meetings and gigs in Edinburgh. To find out more about us, check out our website at illicitink.net/about. To apply for the position, please send a cover letter, CV and at least two copywriting samples to babs@illicitink.net.
