BAFTA is looking for a talented Fundraising Manager to join its busy fundraising and partnerships team.
Please note – interviews will take place the week commencing 20 June in London
BAFTA is a world-leading independent arts charity and the only organisation supporting film, games and television at a global level.
This is a very exciting time to join BAFTA. 2022 is the charity’s 75th year and we have just completed a very successful capital campaign to finance the redevelopment of our home at 195 Piccadilly. BAFTA is also expanding globally with the recent formation of BAFTA North America, bringing together the existing BAFTA offices in Los Angeles and New York.
Our capital campaign has had the generous support of individual donors, trusts and foundations and corporate supporters – both from the screen industries and wider organisations. The redeveloped 195 Piccadilly has given BAFTA the increased space and technology to significantly expand its year-round learning and talent development programme, and we now need to raise the annual funding to deliver this expanded work. All our programmes and initiatives tackle the barriers that can make it hard for talented individuals to build careers in the screen industries and we work with children as young as seven right up to established talent – see here for how we support talent and here to learn about the impact of our work.
We raise revenue to fund BAFTA’s work from a combination of individual giving, events, trusts and foundations and corporate supporters. The fundraising manager is a permanent position and plays a vital role within a proactive and motivated fundraising and partnerships team with ambitious fundraising targets.
The overall remit of this role is threefold: to lead on the strategy, development and delivery of an expanded patron events programme for existing and new supporters that enables donors to engage more fully with BAFTA’s work; to recruit and retain new donors to meet agreed income targets; and to work closely with the wider team to find and develop a pipeline of new prospective supporters.
It is an exciting opportunity for a strategic, creative thinker who is passionate about building and sustaining authentic and rewarding donor relationships, with ample scope to come up with new ideas of how to engage supporters with BAFTA’s work and to demonstrate its impact to potential funders.
Ideally you will have:
- Demonstrable experience of running a Patrons programme or similar supporter group with lead responsibility for pitching and securing support from individual donors to agreed targets
- Experience of devising, organising and delivering intimate and larger-scale cultivation and fundraising events
- Demonstrable experience of securing donations from individuals, preferably in the arts
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Excellent interpersonal skills and confidence in communicating with all levels of internal and external stakeholders
- Strong attention to detail with the ability to handle multiple projects in a fast-paced environment
- A thorough understanding of budgets, cashflow and gift aid
- Experience of working with CRM databases, with Salesforce experience an advantage
- IT skills, with full knowledge of Microsoft Office
- An enthusiasm for film, games and television
- Experience of working with corporate supporters and managing corporate relationships
- Strengths in compiling and analysing data to develop new audiences and inform strategy
Ideally you will be:
- Proactive, energetic and self-motivated
- An enthusiastic, collaborative team member
- A confident, clear communicator with a passion for building relationships
- A strategic thinker with strong research and analytical skills
