Portland Opera, one of the Northwest’s premiere arts organizations and nation’s leading opera companies, is preparing for an exciting celebratory 50th
Anniversary Season in 2014-15. We are currently seeking qualified candidates for this key position. The Portland Opera Marketing and Communications Department works as a team to promote and support Portland Opera’s productions as well as the Broadway Across America series it co-presents. Each position has a defined focus in order to provide maximum clarity and efficiency in the department’s operation. Department staff members serve as a resource to each other while respecting others’ areas of concentration, with the understanding that on an as-needed basis they will be asked to participate more substantially in other areas.
The OMCM works closely with the Director of Marketing and Communications (DMC) to develop and execute a wide range of activities designed to enhance short- and long-term ticket revenue, attract new audiences, enhance the relationship with Portland Opera’s existing audience, and increase Portland Opera’s presence in the community. Areas of focus include: subscription and single ticket sales and promotion, media and public relations, publications, website and social media, and events and community relations.
The successful candidate should be positive, creative, highly organized and outgoing with a strong collaborative, team-oriented attitude. A bachelor’s degree in communications, marketing, or related field is required with a minimum of 3-5 years in arts marketing. Candidates without a related degree will be considered with 8-10 years of marketing or communications experience. Experience in performing arts marketing a must; familiarity with the opera art form a plus.
