Sales and Marketing Manager

Permanent Contract

The Royal Opera House aims to enrich people`s lives through opera and ballet. It seeks to be accessible and engaging, to develop audiences across the UK and to break new ground in the presentation of lyric theatre. As a charity, we could not maintain our reputation, the range of our work, or our digital presence, without the support of our business partners, sponsors, philanthropists and members. Following the Open Up project, completed in 2018, we are now open daily with a wide programme of events, for even more people to experience what the Royal Opera House has to offer. This represents an exciting opportunity to welcome many more people to our heritage site in Covent Garden.
