Salary c. £45,000 pa and good benefits

We are an arts charity who love to make great music happen!  We strongly believe in the power of music as a cohesive force that builds communities and makes life better. 

Our two venues in Birmingham - Town Hall and Symphony Hall – host a programme of over 700 events a year that embraces   internationally renowned classical, rock, pop and roots artists alongside talent development initiatives to support emerging talent.  Our educational and community programmes connect over 18,000 young people and adults each year to the world of music and performance.  On and off-stage, from Mendelssohn to Black Sabbath, Kano to Kraftwerk, we’ve been bringing the world’s finest artists to Birmingham and showcasing the best of the West Midlands to the world for more than 180 years.

A unique opportunity has opened to join us as our new Head of Development.  Working closely with our Chief Executive and senior management team, the Head of Development will build on the excellent momentum generated through our recent Making an Entrance campaign and play a key role in lifting our fundraising approaches, activities and results over the coming years. 

You will be confident in your ability to operate at this strategic level and bring experience of working with individual donors and Trusts & Foundations to deliver successful income generating activities.    To succeed in this role, you will be an inspirational and collaborative team player with experience of motivating and managing others, and bring an enterprising and flexible approach to achieving outstanding results.

If you think you have the talent and experience for this role and are committed to our mission to bring more music to more people, we’d love to hear from you.  For a confidential discussion, please contact our recruitment partners at Richmond Associates or download the information pack from their website.
