Southbank Sinfonia is an orchestra like no other. From giving the first ever performance of Mozart’s Requiem at Notre-Dame to taking centre-stage in the National Theatre’s acclaimed new production of Amadeus, Southbank Sinfonia ensures new generations uphold a venerable tradition, but also asks anew what orchestras have the power to communicate in the modern world. With new players refreshing the orchestra’s potential each year, there is no limit to the stories we can tell about the orchestra.
In our 15th birthday year, we have introduced the role of Communications Assistant to help us share the orchestra’s remarkable mission, personality and initiatives with a wider audience.
The Communications Assistant will take central responsibility for this, making a significant contribution to the way the organisation presents itself in a busy marketplace, working directly with the musicians to generate a wide range of materials that present a vivid picture both of the orchestra itself, and the future of classical music as represented by our players.
This is a creative and highly varied role that embraces both marketing and development, working closely with the Communications Director and Development Manager to nurture new and existing audiences, supporters, and other stakeholders. The Communications Assistant will take pride in sharing Southbank Sinfonia’s story, its news, activities, and impact with the general public, helping to ensure the organisation is vibrantly represented both online and in print, in mailings, press coverage – and even in its frequently innovative approach to presenting concerts.
