The DC Programme & Membership Coordinator will help to deliver the work of an exciting new arts organisation for Eastbourne.

As a social enterprise whose long-term aim is to become self-sustaining, you will be responsible for creating revenue opportunities through fundraising and partnerships, as well as creating and delivering our innovative arts programmes with artists, volunteers and the local community.

You will also support our dynamic and creative DC membership, which boasts 90 artist members to date – growing! – facilitating and supporting them in their own practice, as well as creating opportunities for them to get involved with DC’s work.

You will be responsible for overseeing marketing and communications for the organisation and will have a strong grasp of digital and print marketing techniques and tactics (on a budget), and in particular supporting volunteers to help ensure consistent messaging and approach.

Last but not least, you will work closely with the Board of Directors to support the development of the organisation and business plan to ensure that DC is a thriving and robust arts organisation with a strong governance structure.

This is a great opportunity for a self-starter with at least two years of experience working in the visual and/or performing arts with strong fundraising, marketing, event management, and partnership development skills.

You will ideally be interested in working in the community through an arts context and inspired by the power of creativity to transform and improve lives.

You will enjoy new creative challenges and opportunities and will be benefited by working alongside a great community through the DC members, wider artist network and local residents and businesses.
