Development Director
Employer: Southbank Sinfonia
Salary: C. £40,000 (dependent on experience)
Location: Central London

Southbank Sinfonia is looking to appoint a new Development Director to play a senior role in the strategic direction of the orchestra and lead our team dedicated to raising funds from individual donors, corporate supporters, trusts and foundations.

Since its launch, Southbank Sinfonia has always been proud of the truly personal touch that distinguishes all its fundraising activity. Supporters cherish what the orchestra offers them, they deeply recognise its transformative impact and love following its young musicians’ progress. Many describe the orchestra as family. In appointing a new Development Director, we are looking for someone not only with a strong track-record of fundraising, but who loves its creative possibilities and relishes shaping meaningful, individual associations for people to draw genuine worth from being close to a unique musical entity like ours.

Following our 15th birthday celebrations, the tremendous success of Amadeus, and our Royal Philharmonic Society Award nomination, the organisation is in great shape. As we embark on an ambitious new Business Plan, we aim to welcome even more people to join our supporters, to help ensure a secure and fruitful future. As part of our senior management team, the Development Director will collaborate closely with the Managing Director, Trustees and other colleagues to capitalise on current momentum, taking responsibility for the fundraising strategy that will enable the orchestra to realise bold aspirations in the years to come.

The Development Director will be skilled in strategically seeking and securing new relationships whilst providing excellent stewardship and nurturing current supporters towards greater levels of engagement with the orchestra. Naturally, the role requires a vibrant understanding of what makes an orchestra like Southbank Sinfonia vital in Britain’s musical ecology, and the ability to communicate this effectively to a range of new and existing stakeholders.

The closing date for applications is 5.00pm on Monday 27 November 2017.
