A world-class drama school and educational charity, LAMDA – the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art – delivers exceptional vocational training in the performing arts. LAMDA’s core aim is to train and develop the best artists regardless of social or financial background. The Academy is at an exciting time in its evolution, paving the way for drama school training in the 21st century and developing multi-skilled creative artists and technicians. In order to ensure that its work is accessible to all, LAMDA is passionately committed to widening participation and operates a robust scholarship scheme, awarding significant support to one in five full-time students each year.
The Development department has a vital role in supporting on-going excellence in training and securing funding to ensure we increase diversity in our student body and long term in the industry. The department also works closely with our alumni network.
This role is an exciting and busy one working predominantly with LAMDA’s individual donors who range from local neighbours who donate regularly and have us in their will, to major donors who supported our capital build and continue to donate to projects, scholarships and training excellence.
It is a varied, busy and creative fundraising post working closely with the Director of Development to administer and support the cultivation, engagement, and stewardship of individual donors, including an exciting events programme.
The post holder will have a warm and confident nature, excellent administration skills and experience of individual giving and administering events. With excellent written and verbal communication skills, you will be highly organised and have a good eye for detail. Furthermore, you will have good project management skills.
We want you to have the opportunity to really tell us about yourself and explain to us why this opportunity is right for you. All applications will be judged on content, not on format.
