We are inviting expressions of interest from a suitably qualified Consultant to join the team in a very hands-on capacity to assist with both strategic and operational marketing, including producing a Brand Development Strategy and Plan in relation to Verdant Works.

Verdant Works receives glowing reviews from 97% of its visitors and has been the proud recipient of the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Award for many years running. However, Verdant Works does not reach its full potential in terms of visitor numbers, receiving only approx. 14k visitors a year. A critical strategic outcome for the charity is to drive more visitors to Verdant Works, to increase the sustainability of the organisation as well as for the benefit of the Blackness area and the city. The role of the BDC will be to develop a Strategy and execute a Plan to rebrand Verdant Works to ensure potential visitors can more clearly ascertain the nature and topic of the visitor attraction with the intention of driving more visitors to the venue.

The work will be undertaken from June to January 2024 as part of a UK Shared Prosperity-funded project.

Interested parties should contact Marketing and PR Manager Justine by e-mail: justine.abola@dundeeheritage.co.uk for a full brief and background.

The closing date for applications is Thursday, 15th of June 2023, at 5 pm. It is anticipated that interviews will take place in the week commencing 19th June 2023. DIH Ltd. will notify bidders of our decision week starting the 26th of June, 2023.
