Competitive salary & benefits
Since our establishment in 1904, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) has been a world-leading training centre in acting and theatre production disciplines and inspired students of all ages to fully experience the transformative possibilities of stage and screen. As award-winners and leaders in their fields; actors, directors, writers, producers, lighting, sound and costume designers, prop makers, scenic artists, stage managers, production managers, our diverse student and alumni body make a significant contribution to the creative industries globally.
Our Development Department exists to ensure that the most talented students can access our pioneering and practice-led training in the dramatic arts, regardless of their personal or financial circumstances. The department secures philanthropic and in-kind support to provide vital funding for scholarships, bursaries and our widening participation programme, and soon will be embarking on the RADA Attenborough Campaign that will bring our facilities up-to-date, in line with our world-class training. We are therefore investing in the team with two new roles, to lead our individual and corporate fundraising activities.

You will have experience of securing donations at the five figure level or more, and understand the principles of successful individual giving, legacy and regular giving programmes. Your ability to build relationships quickly and your demonstrably excellent interpersonal, influencing and networking skills will be key to your success in this role.
