Job Vacancy Marketing and Membership Assistant

Organisation

The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) was formed in 1899 to provide services and support to amateur theatre. In 2023, there are over 1800 group members along with over 700 individual members.

As we approach our 125th anniversary, a project has begun to overhaul our membership offer to ensure we are still relevant in years to come.

Phase 1 carried out by Indigo Limited is approaching completion. A survey was created and distributed to all members to gauge what is important to them and how we as an organisation communicate with them. From the results, Indigo Limited will create new marketing KPI’s and help us evolve our offer to members.

Phase 2 will involve a brand review including our website, in the view to modernise our approach and the development of a robust 5-year marketing and communications strategy. This work will be carried out internally for launch of the 125th Anniversary project in September 2023.

Finally, phase 3, this will be a targeting membership recruitment drive to increase membership over a 5-year period.
