Artist Brand Liaison Manager, The Royal Ballet

Permanent opportunity

Full time; 40 hours per week

Salary: up to £50K

Based in: Covent Garden, London

Under the leadership of Kevin O`Hare, The Royal Ballet unites tradition and innovation in world-class performances at Covent Garden and through cinema, streaming and touring worldwide.

Because of the increasing popularity of dance in general and The Royal Ballet in particular, it is expected that commercial opportunities involving the Artists will increase in scale and regularity as The Royal Ballet`s profile continues to grow.

As a result of this, we have an exciting, newly created opportunity for an Artist Brand Liaison Manager to join the organisation and lead our expected growth during this evolutionary period. The main purpose of the role is to manage brand liaison for The Royal Ballet, developing and managing commercial sponsorship models which will bring mutual benefit to both the ROH/Royal Ballet and the individual Artist.

The role will require excellent communication and relationship-building skills, together with a strong organisation and logistics focus and a background or previous experience which demonstrates an understanding of how artists/performing talent (sport, entertainment, arts) can generate commercial value for their employer or the organisations they work for.

Our ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • A proven track record of commercial brand management.
  • Extensive experience in artist relationship management.
  • Demonstrable commercial `nous` with proven experience of closing deals.
  • Credibility and influence as an ambassador both internally and externally, able to operate effectively at all levels with excellent people and relationship management skills.
  • Strong negotiation skills, with the motivation and drive to meet objectives.
  • Ability to support a high-performance culture and team ethic with effective performance management and resource management skills.

We value the diversity new hires can bring to our organisation and are particularly keen to hear from candidates with demonstrable commercial, talent management and partnership experience in other sectors. An understanding of and/or interest in the dance sector is desirable but not essential but the ability to learn quickly is vital.

The Royal Opera House is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment in which everyone can thrive. We particularly welcome applications from those who are from a global majority background and/or those who are disabled, as they are under-represented within our organisation. As a Disability Confident Employer, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the essential minimum criteria for our vacancies.
