Job Opportunity
Marketing/Special Projects Person

Are you interested in working in the not-for-profit sector with one of Canada’s most respected Festival and Concert Production teams? Vancouver Island MusicFest is looking for a Marketing and Special Projects Person to begin work with us immediately.
We are looking for someone who has experience in Marketing Special Events and is flexible and willing to work with us in our traditional and more unusual ways of publicizing our events.
The right applicant will be someone who is energetic and has great people skills as well as skills in writing, design and soliciting sponsors. Being computer savvy will be considered an asset as will having sincere interest in the roots, folk and world music worlds. Good communication skills in person, on the phone, through social media and in writing are a must.
We need someone who is a self-starter and a multi-tasker and who is looking for a work situation they can dig into, rather than having a simple 9-to-5 kind of mentality. We like to have fun but we work hard. You will be expected to work within fairly tight deadlines and to a strict budget. You will be expected to be able to take direction well, work on your own and be a strong team member.
Beyond our basic requirements, we are willing to build this position around the skill sets of the person we hire. This could be a full time or part time position depending on how things work with the successful applicant.
Please send us an email at listing your experience in all the areas above and include previous work history and references. A list of your skill sets that you feel are relevant would be appreciated.
Also include your perceptions of Vancouver Island MusicFest as this will give us an idea on your understanding of what we do, who you would be representing and how you would represent us through the media and the public.
Young people, don’t be afraid to apply as some mentorship may be part of what we do if needed by the right applicant.
Thanks for your interest in Vancouver Island MusicFest.
