We are looking for external support to be based within Visit Northumberland to deliver marketing and communications activity on behalf of the Hadrian's Wall partnership for a period to end June 2025.

Visit Northumberland is the host provider for this contract and is therefore seeking an experienced, creative, results-driven PR and marketing professional or agency to create and deliver a communications strategy in support of its activities until the end of June 2025. The appointment comes with a supplementary activity delivery budget.

Through funding from the North of Tyne Combined Authority Tourism and Events Investment Programme through Northumberland County Council, we are partnering with the Hadrian’s Wall Partnership to fulfill a unique opportunity to provide capacity to animate, enhance and promote the Hadrian’s Wall UNESCO World Heritage site as a major tourism asset for the north through the engagement of an enthusiastic and dynamic communicator.

This contracted role will serve as a resource to initiate effective marketing and communications activity to build on the growing interest in Northumberland as a visitor destination, and latent appetite developed following the recent delivery of the hugely successful 1900th anniversary events programme on Hadrian’s Wall. This role will also play an important part in providing an additional resource to support the development of numerous business cases for Hadrian’s Wall attraction projects to secure Borderlands investment funding.

Submissions are invited from suitably qualified individuals or agencies interested in taking this forward, with a deadline for submission on Friday 14th June 2024. Appointment is expected to commence by 1st July 2024, or earlier by agreement.
