Are you a social media specialist and digital marketing whizz who is passionate about the arts?

ZoieLogic Dance Theatre is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic freelance digital marketeer to work with our friendly team based at MAST Mayflower Studios in Southampton’s exciting cultural quarter. This brand new opportunity is a flexible, part time, freelance position – perfect for someone seeking a varied, stimulating and rewarding role as with an existing team, with space and flexibility for other pursuits or commitments outside of the role.

ZoieLogic Dance Theatre, led by founding Artistic Director Zoie Golding MBE, challenges perceptions of what dance is, who it is for and how it is presented. We’re on a mission to get more people involved in dance, especially men and boys and those less likely to see or take part in the arts. We make this happen by creating and touring professional dance theatre shows, and through our outreach, engagement, and talent development programmes.

We want our team to reflect the diversity of our local area. We especially welcome applications from underrepresented voices in dance and the arts, including disabled, Black, Asian and global majority members of our community.
