Prospectus is thrilled to be partnering with The Royal Ballet School to recruit their new Development Manager. The Royal Ballet School’s mission is to nurture, train and educate exceptional young dancers for the Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and other leading UK and international institutions. A newly crafted position in the team, you’ll be joining an exceptional team at a very exciting time.

The Development Manager will principally be responsible for the relationship management of existing major donors and their giving to the School. You will take the lead on bespoke strategies to steward these donors and will immediately inherit a portfolio of major donors, family trusts and foundations that support strategic income and impact in wellbeing, academic, artistic and performance projects. Working within the Development team you will also be responsible for new donor cultivation.

The selected candidate will have a demonstrable track record of working within a development team and will enjoy working with major donors on their giving and experience of an organisation. Reporting to the Head of Development, you will have a proven ability across fundraising techniques and systems to achieve targets and will have the ability to write compellingly and present to different fundraising audiences.
