Trusts and Foundations Manager (Part-time Position)

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is seeking to appoint an experienced, resourceful and enthusiastic development professional to grow its revenue stream from Trusts and Foundations. Working closely with the Deputy Managing Director, who is also the Head of Development, the Trusts and Foundations Manager will devise and implement a Trust and Foundation strategy to maintain and develop existing relationships, whilst proactively identifying and approaching new and innovative funding sources in the UK and internationally. Attention to detail and the diligent stewardship of the RPO’s existing relationships will be of paramount importance and the Trusts and Foundations Manager will be comfortable engaging with funders at all levels.

This important role will provide an ideal opportunity for a professional with a demonstrable track record in Trust and Foundation fundraising (not necessarily in the arts) who is looking to develop their career within a high profile and dynamic organisation.
