Job Description

We are seeking a Head of Individual Giving to lead on the development and implementation of a strategic individual giving programme at CFT, designed to increase income in this area and to offer a diverse range in ways individuals can give to CFT.

Individual Giving incorporates lower level one off donors, regular givers, Friend and Festival Player memberships up to £3,000 per donation, as well as oversight of the Name a Seat scheme and Legacy marketing. This will be achieved partially through the line management of three supporting staff: a Friends Administrator, a Memberships Officer for Festival Players and dotted line management of the Development Assistant.

The Department

The Development Department is responsible for raising all voluntary income from individuals, trusts and corporate partnerships for Chichester Festival Theatre. We have a number of membership schemes, public facing campaigns and sponsorship opportunities for our prospective and existing donors to engage with. Over the next four years we aim to maintain and further develop our current voluntary income of £1.2m per year. The Head of Individual Giving will play a key role in achieving this goal.
