Job description

Scene & Heard is recruiting a highly motivated, experienced fundraising Development Manager to join our small and busy team.

A pivotal role, the Development Manager (fundraising) is responsible for all of Scene & Heard’s fundraising activities, generating income that enables the running of this award-winning charity. The successful applicant will enjoy having a broad remit and varied workload, balancing the demands of fundraising, relationship management, grant reporting and communications.

Established in 1999, Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project - a children’s charity and professional theatre company. We partner the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals, giving them an experience of quality one-to-one adult attention enabling them to write plays which are then performed by professional actors. The charity operates with a staff of 4, various freelance specialist staff and a volunteer base of 400 arts professionals.

This is an exciting time to join us. We have just moved into our new HQ, in Camden – a brand new, highly acclaimed community building, which houses our offices plus classes, courses, rehearsals, prop and costume making and costume store.

The Development Manager will generate income for the charity, providing excellent relationship management for our supporters and proactive communications to support the ambitions of our recently renewed Strategic Plan.

  • A proven, successful fundraiser
  • An outstanding relationship manager
  • Highly motivated, organised and efficient
