We are currently looking for a Membership Manager to join our Audience Insight team on a full time, permanent basis.

Southbank Centre’s Members are a key segment of our audience and supporter base. They enjoy priority booking, free access to the Hayward Gallery and use of our Membership Lounge in the Royal Festival Hall and provide the Southbank Centre with an important source of income.

Excellent marketing, data analysis and communications skills are central to this role. As an experienced marketeer able to communicate membership and loyalty products in a compelling way, you will be effective in briefing colleagues to ensure communications and campaigns deliver maximum impact. You will be comfortable analysing data of all kinds to determine trends, inform campaigns and strategies, report on financial targets and identify new opportunities. You’ll be sales driven, and energised by driving growth across our Membership and audience loyalty products both by ensuring we maximise our retention levels and identify new target audiences to recruit.

We welcome applications from people from a Black, Asian or Ethnically Diverse background or those who are D/deaf or disabled. If you wish to discuss reasonable adjustments such as a BSL interpreter for your interview please indicate this on your application form. Interviews will take place at The Southbank Centre. If you would like to speak to someone about any adjustments or concerns you can also email and we will be in touch with you to make the necessary arrangements.

By attracting people to work for us from a broad range of backgrounds with diverse attitudes, opinions and beliefs we can continue to look at the world with fresh eyes and find new ways of doing things. The Southbank Centre is a warm and welcoming place to work, with great aspirations and ambitions to create great and accessible work for all. We pride ourselves in building a supportive environment to enable the development of our staff.

If you feel you have just some of the required skills and experience but meet the person specification, we would still encourage you to apply; we are very open to continuing the training and development of individuals who are self motivated to acquire new skills and knowledge relevant to the role.
