Head of Development (maternity cover)

Career stage: Senior

Within the Fundraising Team, we’re  seeking a Head of Development to take an overall lead on fundraising while a colleague is taking maternity leave. We’re also seeking another maternity cover as Head of Communications, taking a lead on the Communications Team overall. We are willing to consider a range of working arrangements. We’d consider freelance arrangements or a straight maternity cover. As a growing team, there may be the opportunity to join the department beyond the period of cover.

The Head of Development is a senior position within the External Relations and Strategic Development team. The post-holder will manage a small team that includes a Senior Development Manager, Development Manager (in recruitment), Individual Giving Officer and Development Coordinator. They will also work closely with other colleagues in the External Relations and Strategic Development team, as well as those in Programme and Conference & Events teams.

It’s a great time to join our team. During the last 12 months we’ve more than doubled our fundraised income, and we’re producing some exciting new work to shout about, including our award-winning The World How Wide project, a brilliant programme of music-making classes, and an exciting and innovative season of creative work. We’ve just announced Variations, a project which asked artists to explore issues of the pandemic and climate crisis, featuring John Grant, Tune-Yards, Moor Mother and Yoko Ono and Anohni.

We have some of the finest facilities for music making in the country, a world-class orchestra, and support an inclusive music learning programme that reaches 50,000 each year. Join us and help to make all of this and more happen!
