BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER

 

We are looking to work with a financially competent, experienced and skilled individual who can work with the Artistic Director to identify and write successful fundraising applications, take ownership of budget management and charity compliance, and support the ongoing strategic development of the charity.

 

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a leading role within a fast-growing community arts organisation which has recently transitioned to charitable status and successfully achieved a significant amount of funding.

 

We foresee this job will be heavily front-end loaded as the charity is in a period of rapid expansion, but we are open to working flexibly in order to work with the right candidate who will be able to maximise the potential of this job. This role offers huge opportunity for expansion for the right candidate, with a view to increasing the size of the role and length of contract.

 

This role is offered as a self-employed freelance rate of £250 per day at two days per week, inclusive of all travel, holidays and other personal deductions. This role is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund until the end of May, with a possibility of developing the role past that point.
