About Us

We are here for PRS songwriter and composer members and their dependants, to offer financial support and advice in times of need. So far this year we have  awarded 4,000 grants totalling £2.1m to make a real difference for the many members whose circumstances have changed due to Covid-19. 


About the Role

Following an extraordinary period for our charity and the music industry, the PRS Members’ Fund is seeking a multi-disciplinary fundraising specialist, who can offer legacy marketing and communications experience. Bringing their considerable expertise and flexibility to the small and committed Fund team, this vital role will oversee development and execution of our fundraising goals to support the Fund in its work which is to help songwriter and composer members of PRS for Music and their families.

The Fundraiser will achieve this by:

  • Devising a new fundraising strategy to maximise donor support.
  • Using a range of marketing techniques and communications to grow and develop our supporter base and to recruit and retain donors.
  • Ensuring communications are GDPR compliant and follow Fundraising Regulator and Charity Commission best practice as well as HMRC legislation.
  • Developing the charity’s fundraising appeals and other sources of income that raise funds for our charitable activities.  
  • Coordinating activities that are allied to fundraising including website, media, and marketing of the charity to ensure effective promotion of the “PRS” brand and key communications.
  • Planning, delivering, and supporting fundraising events.
  • Coordinating and analysing industry research and sector trends to maximise the charity’s reach and to monitor successful outcomes.
  • Maintaining and developing the CRM database of donors and supporters and produce accurate statistical data relating to donor and legacy groups.
  • Contributing to the Fund’s wider purposes.


The salary range for this role is £27,000 - £35,000 per annum, depending on experience.

We are looking for a highly motivated, proactive individual with a positive can-do attitude who can manage a challenging workload whilst exceeding personal and team targets across a broad fundraising programme. You will have experience of managing individual donor relationships and writing successful funding applications to trusts, foundations and businesses and be an expert in giving and gifts in Wills.
