Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with the Royal Academy of Dance to appoint their new Development Manager on an initial two year contract. The Royal Academy of Dance are world leaders in dance teaching and have offices in 36 countries and are one of the most influential dance education organisations.
Joining at an exciting time, ahead of the centenary next year and a brand new headquarters opening in 2021, the Development Manager will plan and implement a Public Campaign as part of the wider capital appeal. The Development Manager will arrange meetings with major donors, prepare materials ahead of major donor meetings, and work closely with Board Members and the Senior Leadership Team to solicit high value gifts.
The selected candidate will be a highly organised, professional fundraiser interested in arts and culture, ideally dance. You will have demonstrable experience of working directly with major donors and will be interested in furthering your career by continuing to work with a warm portfolio of donors and making the 'ask'. The Development Manger will work internally as a superb ambassador for fundraising and will build supportive, mutually beneficial relationships with other staff across RAD.
