Nesta are looking for a creative, innovative and experienced Event Marketing Manager to join our Communications team to work on one our biggest festivals, FutureFest (2018).

Over the past four years, FutureFest, Nesta's biggest and boldest event, has become a vital platform to showcase our work, positioning Nesta as a global thought-leader in the innovation sphere. The festival, which invites thousands of people to experience, discuss and interrogate the future, has attracted a growing community of decision makers, political influencers, changemakers and trendsetters across science, technology, the arts and beyond.

We are now looking for an ambitious and creative marketing professional who knows how to market festivals, arts/cultural productions or large consumer-facing ticketed events.   

The Event Marketing Manager is a key position in the festival delivery team, reporting directly to the Director of Brand Marketing, and working closely with the FutureFest Event Producer, and members of Nesta's Media and Digital teams. 

You will be responsible for marketing and campaign planning, ticketing sales, targeted on and offline campaigns, audience insight, and the continuation of audience engagement after the event. 

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Proven track record marketing large consumer-facing ticketed events, festivals or arts/cultural productions
  • Demonstrable experience of meeting ticket sales targets for events
  • Demonstrable experience of audience-led thinking: shaping creative communication outputs based on excellent audience understanding
  • Experience of creating and evaluating multi-media campaigns on and offline - including direct, content, email, and partnership marketing 
  • Strong experience of the latest marketing techniques in digital and social media channels for use in marketing events - including cost effective creation and promotion of video content (and a good working knowledge of data protection regulation) and social media outreach
  • A passion for future-facing topics, and an awareness and understanding of the competitive set for FutureFest
