If you feel you'd like to spread your wings in your next position and make real impact...please do get in touch!
Are you a bold, creative charity individual giving fundraiser...completely compelled and excited by all the opportunities which individual giving offers in 2021 to seriously grow income to make an impact for your charity?.....it has been a rollercoaster 15 months for individual giving!
If you love the huge variety of potential in the individual tool box, the opportunity to develop a strategy, get excited by data and are as detailed oriented and organised as you are opportunistic, would enjoy the opportunity to present to Board the future strategy for this organisation....as a master juggler and senior fundraiser, you'll love this role.
We are looking for a Director of Individual Giving who has well seasoned expertise in all things individual giving, has significant acquisition as well as retention experience, and has worked with media buying agencies and consultants. You'll have room to try new things, to build on some already excellent work, and to be listened to when something isn't working. As we are not a huge team, we'd love it is if you are also happy to roll your sleeves up, and enjoy collaborating across an organisation too.
We've created our individual programme from scratch, and whilst it is fledgling, we are very committed as an organisation to make it a significant fundraising stream with your expertise, widening the channels, sophistication and demographic substantially. You'll already have significant growth experience under your belt, and be dying to apply what you know in a more organisationally strategic manner.
Whilst we sound like a pure 'arts' charity, we actually are a youth brand and all about social impact for young people.
You really don't need to be musical for this role, but rather have a passion for helping all young people to fulfil their potential. Not all of us know one end of a musical instrument from the other, by any means, and whilst we deliver excellence in music, NYO is all about accessibility, and our aim is to bring music and its many benefits to all young people.
There is absolutely no doubt that in 2021 music has a more crucial role to play than ever in providing opportunities for teenagers to explore their full potential, learn to collaborate, understand others' points of view, to lead and to impact on everyone’s future.
You will join a team of six Development staff with plans in place to grow to 12 by 2023. You will report to and work closely with the Development Director and line manage a team of three.
NYO has a lively and forward thinking culture. If you are willing to work hard, come up with new ideas, bring a growth mindset to the team, we can’t wait to hear from you, and we very much look forward to welcoming you into the team.
If you’d like to find out more and for further details and a job pack, please don't hesitate to contact us for an informal chat via Charlotte Wilmot, Director, Eardley Wilmot, firstname.lastname@example.org. We've got so much to share with you...
The deadline for this position is rolling, and we are reviewing applications as we receive them.
We welcome applications from anyone regardless of their age, experience, disability, ethnicity, heritage, sexuality, gender and socio-economic background.
The National Youth Orchestra is deeply committed to inclusive working practices, and to making any reasonable adjustments.
We have fabulous offices in Lincoln's Inn and are working between home and the office. It's great to come together, and we also appreciate quiet time at home to get our heads down.
