CRM Marketing Assistant
Job Title: CRM Marketing Assistant (12 Month Fixed Term Contract)
Responsible To: Senior CRM Marketing Manager
The National Theatre
The National Theatre is dedicated to making the very best theatre and sharing it with as many people as possible.
We stage up to 30 productions at our South Bank home each year, ranging from re-imagined classics - such as Greek tragedy and Shakespeare - to modern masterpieces and new work by contemporary writers and theatre-makers. The work we make strives to be as open, as diverse, as collaborative and as national as possible. We want to inspire artists and audiences to think in new ways, to constantly re-imagine the act of making theatre. Much of that new work is researched and developed at the NT Studio: we are committed to nurturing innovative work from new writers, directors, creative artists and performers.
The National's work is also seen on tour throughout the UK and internationally, and in collaborations and co-productions with regional theatres. Popular shows transfer to the West End and occasionally to Broadway; and through the National Theatre Live programme we broadcast to 2,000 cinemas in 52 countries around the world. Our extensive Learning programme offers talks, events and workshops for people of all ages in the new Clore Learning Centre, and reaches nationwide through programmes such as Connections, our annual festival of new plays for schools and youth theatres. National Theatre: On Demand In Schools offers six acclaimed, curriculum-linked productions free to stream on demand in every secondary school in the country. Online, you'll find a rich variety of innovative digital content on every aspect of theatre.
We do all we can to keep ticket prices affordable and to reach a wide audience, and use our public funding to maintain artistic risk-taking, accessibility and diversity. Whether you've been to the National many times or are making your first visit, we hope you will be entertained, challenged or inspired.
