Tate Commerce maximises profits for Tate through its commercial activities and extends the value of Tate’s brand while sharing Tate’s mission to promote public knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of British, modern and contemporary art. Alongside the creation of innovative products and our award-winning books, our teams look after the management of Tate’s retail stores including London’s largest art bookshop. We also operate Tate’s online shop and work to further maximise profits for the gallery through licensing the Tate brand and images from the collection.

Not content with being one of the world’s leading art book publishers, we have also forged an award-winning range of children’s books. We publish unique and cutting edge books which aim to reach the widest possible range of readers. With that in mind we also work hard to ensure our books are available globally and the key responsibility for this lies with the Sales & Marketing team.

We have an opportunity to join the team as Marketing and Publicity Co-ordinator; looking after all communications about our books, ranging from sales materials for sales reps and the book trade to press releases and social media content aimed at readers.

We’re on the lookout for someone who can devise exciting and engaging campaigns around key titles, working collaboratively with Tate’s Publicity and Marketing teams, ensuring we keep on brand with the Tate message and taking advantage of its incredible reach of the wider organisation.

Are you a creative soul with an eye for detail, someone who is organised and proactive with a strong sense of initiative and a positive “can do” attitude?
Could you bring relevant practical experience of both marketing and publicity, together with the knowledge of how to effectively reach out to key influencers?

This is an integral role, and we are looking for someone who has the confidence, enthusiasm and drive to contribute both as part of the wider team but can also take ownership of the role specific tasks that underpin this busy post.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. In addition to a spectacular place of work, we offer great benefits, discounts in our shops and cafés, Employee Assistance Program, Cycle Scheme and free entry to exhibitions.

We hope to begin conducting interviews from week commencing 3rd June.
