The Albany is an arts centre in the heart of Deptford that exists to inspire, develop and support creativity for the benefit of our community, encompassing the London Borough of Lewisham and beyond. We have an incredibly varied set of earned income services, and for many people, the business development team (café, workspace & hires) are their first point of contact with the Albany.

As Creative Communities Coordinator you will:

· help us maximise our earned income by working in a public-facing role both in person and over email, responding to enquiries and carrying these from initial advice through to point of sale, and supporting our operations team with delivery on the day as required.

· help position and promote the Albany and Deptford Lounge as a Daytime Destination within the borough of Lewisham, by helping to market our different workspace services across room hire, resident offices, café, and coworking spaces.

· build on existing relationships and opportunities, by working internally and externally to communicate clearly and keep our administrative records up to date to help us better understand our audiences.

This is an ideal opportunity for a highly organised person with strong communication skills and the ability to manage competing demands in a fast-paced environment. You will be equally comfortable working in an office or in a customer facing environment, taking a pro-active and hands-on approach. This role works with all teams within the Albany, so is ideally suited for someone looking to gain experience with understanding the inner workings of a community arts organisation
