Date closing:

Prospectus is pleased to be partnering with the London Sinfonietta to recruit their new Head of Development. The London Sinfonietta is one of the world's leading contemporary music ensembles. Formed in 1968, their commitment to making new music has led to the commission of 450 works and premieres of hundreds more. The Head of Development will lead on all fundraising for the organisation and it's an excellent time to join.

The Head of Development will lead income generation for the organisation from trusts and foundations, corporate partnerships and individual giving. You will work to a target c. £300,000 each year with fundraising efforts going toward concerts, touring, digital projects, talent development for young artists, and much more. Reporting to the Chief Executive & Artistic Director, the Head of Development will lead on all applications and reporting to trusts, foundations, and corporate partners and will be the primary point of communication for all supporters.

The selected candidate will have demonstrable experience in fundraising, raising funds through a range of income sources across trusts and foundations and individuals, spotting new opportunities for fundraising partnerships and gifts at every possible opportunity. You will ideally have some fundraising events experience too and will ideally have knowledge of music and/or orchestral working environments, but this is not essential.
