Wales Arts International (WAI), the International Agency of the Arts Council of Wales, is recruiting to the role of International Digital Communications Officer. This dedicated international role will actively promote a positive understanding of the arts and culture of Wales to international and national audiences with, and on behalf of, Welsh Government, and will work with the Arts Council’s Communication team to deliver the international audience engagement plan.

The International Digital Communications Office will exploit all aspects of traditional and new technology (including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, We Chat, Weebo etc) used in a variety of geographical areas to ensure that we communicate with a wide diversity of audiences in priority countries as well as in the UK. As a public body the Arts Council strives to manage its affairs to the highest standards of effectiveness and accountability; the International Digital Communications Officer will help us in achieving that goal.

The successful candidate/s will hold a relevant degree and or/previous professional experience gained via employment in a relevant media role, will have sound knowledge of digital media in Wales, UK and Internationally, and will have experience of communicating internationally. 

We work in both English and Welsh and fluency in Welsh (both written and spoken) is essential for this post. However, WAI is adopting a flexible approach to its recruitment to this role and will consider applications from Welsh learners who wish to undertake this role on a job share basis with someone who is fluent in Welsh. Therefore, we will also accept applications from those who are fluent in Welsh who wish to work part time as part of a job share. Please make your preference clear when submitting your application.

Our benefits include flexible working hours/pattern, generous holidays and a final salary pension.
