Job description


  • Do you want to be instrumental in the creation of a new centre for music education and performance in Sheffield and transform the lives of 1000s of children from all backgrounds?
  • Do you have understanding and experience of fundraising for major capital projects?
  • Are you a great team player?

Harmony Works  is a partnership between Sheffield Music Academy and Sheffield Music Hub to create a permanent new home for music education in the City Centre.  To do this we need to raise £12m, so we are looking for an enthusiastic development officer to join our small but dynamic, growing team. 

The project will acquire a heritage building and refurbish it specifically for music education.  Harmony Works will also deliver an ambitious programme of outreach activity to involve more of Sheffield’s children and young people in music, particularly those who experience unequal access to participation.

This initial part time, fixed term role will deliver the project’s fundraising ground work.  As the project progresses we hope to expand the team with more specialist fundraising roles and this post has the potential to be reshaped and extended as part of that process,  depending on performance, how the project develops, and funding success.  The project is planned to run until 2025.

Location: Home working with a requirement to be in Sheffield for site meetings and team meetings up to twice per month (Covid 19 restrictions permitting).
