About Us

Help Musicians is a charity that loves music and for 100 years has been working hard to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians across the UK. We want to create a world where musicians thrive. 

A musicians’ life can be precarious with ups and downs throughout a career. Opportunities must be hard-won, whilst challenges come along all too easily, with unsteady income and physical and mental health concerns common issues to navigate. Musicians were hit hard during the pandemic, with thousands needing financial hardship support to make ends meet. As we look ahead, we are committed to helping re-build careers and reaching more musicians across the U.K to make a meaningful difference to the lives and careers of the individuals who bring such joy to all of us through their talent.

About the role

As an independent charity we rely on the generosity of donors to support our work and help those in need. The Head of Fundraising therefore is a vital member of the leadership team, developing strategy and plans to grow income and effectively steward supporters. You will have overall responsibility for public fundraising, leading, and inspiring a small but dedicated team focusing on individual giving, community fundraising, legacies and major gifts. With experience of bringing new ideas to life and delivering change, you will have experience of hitting and exceeding income targets across multiple strands of income. This role will offer the right candidate the opportunity to think creatively about how to widen our donor base, increasing engagement in the charity’s work from music lovers right across the U.K.

About you

We’re not looking for someone with experience in every aspect of the remit of this role; instead, you’ll possess an aptitude for setting public fundraising strategy and leading in the development of a multi-year plan to achieve goals. Applying your exceptional leadership skills to deliver through a high performing team and working collaboratively with others across the organisation to set campaigns, drive digital growth and demonstrate the positive impact the charity delivers to those who support us.

Who we want:

  • Visionary – setting a path for the future and bringing teams with you
  • A strategic do-er – plan it, deliver it, analyse it
  • Empathetic – understanding the motives of supporters to deepen engagement and identify new markets
