Fundraising Officer, Apollo Music Projects

About Apollo Music Projects

It’s an exciting time for this small and ambitious music charity, dedicated to bringing live classical music to children who might not otherwise experience it. Since 2004, more than 13,000 children have experienced the magic of live performance through our programmes from classroom to concert hall, culminating in the thrilling spectacle of a full orchestra in concert.

Apollo Music Projects provides a unique opportunity for children to work closely with professional musicians, using the language of music to develop listening skills, communication and teamwork. Our programmes enable students to discover for themselves how to listen to and enjoy classical music, using their own imagination and experiences to enter a new world of sound, stories and feelings. Our aim is to continue to extend our programme to boroughs across London, and in the near future we plan to take our innovative approach throughout the country.

About the Position

Our strategic decision to expand relies on our ability as a charity to expand our fundraising significantly. We are now looking for a Fundraising Officer who will manage our fundraising and profile raising activities amongst key and repeat donors and Friends of Apollo, as well as to expand AMP’s fundraising portfolio further, developing a strategy to identify and research new sources of funding. 

Working closely with the Chief Executive and the AMP staff, the successful candidate will work to secure funding from a wide range of businesses, charities and foundations, and public sector organisations, as well expanding our individual giving. This position offers the successful candidate the opportunity to play a part in helping to shape the charity’s growth and expansion plans.

We are looking for a highly organised, enterprising and personable individual, passionate about the arts and about creating opportunities for children from a range of backgrounds to listen to and appreciate the magic of live music.

Apollo Music Projects is proud to be an equal opportunity employer committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit.
