You’ll be a key member of the senior management team, based in central London, and you’ll feed into the strategy and operations of one of the UK most exciting producing theatres. You’ll ensure the success of the theatre’s highly skilled and dynamic fundraising team and its ambitious annual target. You’ll thrive in a fast-paced environment, and be entrepreneurial, detail oriented, intellectually agile and well organised.

We expect all staff to show a clear commitment to diversity in all its forms.

• Oversee all approaches including major gifts, Trusts and Foundations, membership & Patron schemes, and fundraising events.

• Ensure the department maintains GDPR compliance in all aspects of its communications, and in the way data is processed and retained.

• Work closely with the Director of Development and the Director of Marketing & Communications to ensure that donor communications, offers and benefits are creative and attractive.

• Report to the Board as required
