Job Description

Paraorchestra bring extraordinary live music experiences to audiences in concert halls and public spaces around the world, blending artforms and technology with world-class musicianship.

Under the Artistic Direction of award-winning conductor Charles Hazlewood, our pioneering ensemble seeks to disrupt and reinvent the orchestra, bringing together professional disabled and non-disabled musicians and artists across artforms and genres, appealing to the widest audience, whilst radically shifting outdated perceptions of both orchestral music and disability.

We seeking a highly organised and proactive Marketing Assistant to support the delivery of marketing and communications for all Paraorchestra artistic projects and our artist development programme. 

Although predominantly task-led, you can also expect to work across many areas of the organisation’s output including supporting during rehearsals and performances (in Bristol and at locations across the UK); content creation; and liaising with venue marketing teams.

A key element of this role is to provide day to day, time-sensitive admin support for the Head of Communications and Marketing Managers, for which you should be highly organised, have good attention to detail, with a passion for systems and processes. You should be adept at all things digital with a strong grasp of Microsoft Office, and excellent writing skills.

Although preferable, you do not need to have worked in the arts before. A passion for and readiness to learn about the industry is essential, along with demonstrable strong administrative experience.

Our Job Packs are available in Word and PDF and come in large print as standard. If you require the Job Packs in any other format please get in touch.

We accept written, audio, or video applications and can provide support with your application should you need it.

We can also offer an informal discussion with you before applying if you would like to get to know a little more about our culture and what it’s like to work for Paraorchestra.   

Access Support and Inclusivity

We recognise that the arts have not been a go-to employer for anyone who identifies as disabled. We want to act positively and change this and would like to hear particularly from those that identify as d/Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent under the Social Model of Disability or who have faced barriers to their career progressing due to access needs not being met. If you are d/Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent and you meet the essential criteria for the role, we will guarantee you an interview.
