JOB OPPORTUNITY Partnership Development and Marketing


We are looking for a key member of the Estuary 2020 team to work closely with both Metal and Cement Fields across South Essex and North Kent in two key areas – Partnership Development and Marketing.

About Estuary 2020

Estuary 2020 will be a month-long, curated festival of visual art, literature, performance, film & discussion delivered through a partnership between Metal and Cement Fields ( a new organisation incorporating Whitstable Biennale). It will be the second edition of the large-scale festival that celebrates the spectacular Thames Estuary – the first being in 2016. Taking place on the river itself, and along the 60 miles of South Essex and North Kent coastline, an ambitious programme of new and existing artworks and events will explore and respond to powerful themes resonant to the Estuary, connecting communities from Shoeburyness to Tilbury on the north banks and Ebbsfleet to the Isle of Sheppey on the South.

As a publicly funded festival, Estuary 2020 can only achieve its ambitions and aims through great partnerships, sponsorship and donations – all of which are driven by great opportunities and clear communication of the impact and benefits of the festival to our communities of South Essex and North Kent.

This is a freelance position – approximately 80 days over 10 months / 42 weeks (January – October 2020)
