Battersea Arts Centre supports artists, young people and communities to spark positive change through their creativity in many different ways, and this social purpose is central to everything they do. BAC is a home for radical artistic ideas, and Prospectus is delighted to be partnering with them to appoint their new Head of Development.
The Head of Development will lead on income generation for BAC and securing crucial funds to enable the organisation's charitable work to continue. The role will manage the trusts, foundations, and statutory income target of c. £3.2million per year and work to secure income from individuals and corporate partners for bespoke projects and core costs. The Head of Development will deliver a fundraising strategy across all supporters and personally lead on relationship management with key supporters and partners. A fantastic Development Committee has recently been formed, and so the Head of Development will harness support from this key group of individuals too.
The selected candidate will have demonstrable experience of fundraising across different disciplines and will enjoy working in a fast-paced, adaptable fundraising environment. You'll have the opportunity to fundraise for fantastic projects, led by “Shapers” of these projects, so a creative, open-minded approach to funding possibilities will be valuable in this role. The selected candidate will also recognise the huge potential of philanthropic support that can be unearthed for the organisation too, so experience in this area with individuals is desirable.
