Kickstart job placement - Arts Admin and Sales Assistant

Rah Rah Community Theatre Company is looking for an Arts Admin and Sales assistant. The aim of our company, formed in 2001, is to take theatre into the community that makes an impact, having a particular focus on theatre for social change and as a form of therapy. Our productions are brought directly into theatres, schools, care centres, community spaces, and outdoor events. In 2017 Rah Rah set up a charity (Rah Rah Community Theatre Company) primarily for our work on raising awareness of human trafficking and to reach out to our more marginalised groups such as the elderly, learning difficulties, and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We are ideally looking for someone who has an interest in the Arts and is passionate about making a difference within  local communities. We are excited about employing a young person and look forward to brainstorming new ideas on how to connect with young people today.  As well as helping with the admin and marketing, we are also keen to offer the chosen candidate the opportunity to shadow and assist with any other roles within the charity that might interest the candidate (acting, auditions, rehearsals, directing, writing).  The candidate would be required to work remotely and be involved in regular team meetings online. We anticipate and hope the generation of additional sales created by this role will enable the charity to continue to fund the position after the initial 6 months is up.

 

The job role includes assisting our admin team with the following:

Email marketing to Rah Rah’s databases; telephone sales – calling both new and regular clients; adding content to social media channels; source and create new databases for potential clients; assisting in creating showreels for individual projects;  maintaining the company database; and invoicing, tour scheduling and creating feedback forms.
