Employer Birmingham Rep

Director of Fundraising

The Rep (Birmingham Repertory Theatre)
Birmingham, UK
Salary range of £50,000 – £60,000 pa

We are Birmingham’s world-class producing theatre. We create inclusive, exciting and exceptional theatre by, with and for Birmingham and the wider world.

The Rep is a special place. It’s a place to be transported – to laugh and cry, wish and wonder. We create live experiences and memories, bringing communities and the arts closer together and enriching lives across the region and beyond.

Fundraising income is vital to our work on and off-stage and after a recent strategic review, we’ve identified that there is untapped potential and significant room for growth across all levels and forms. To meet our ambitions for this next level of fundraising activity and outcomes, we are seeking a creative, talented and collaborative fundraiser to join us and lead our efforts in this area.

As our new Director of Fundraising, you will bring a track record of philanthropic and grant income generation, along with well-developed influencing, negotiation and inter-personal skills. You will be strategic, organised and ambitious for the Rep, and excited by an opportunity to join a team that is looking for a fresh approach and to build something. As a key member of the Senior Leadership Team, you will need to gain credibility quickly and become a trusted colleague – someone who understands what it takes to operate in a fast-paced environment and work with the detail, without losing sight of the bigger picture. The Fundraising team is growing and quite new, so you will develop and inspire them to rise to the challenge of what’s to come.

In return, you will have the support of a senior leadership team, the Board, and an engaged Fundraising Development Board that is ready to help us achieve even more. You will have the opportunity to help shape our future and make a tangible impact at a challenging time for the arts sector.

If this sounds like the sort of career opportunity you’re looking for next, we’d love to start a conversation. Please contact our recruitment partner, Sonja Dunphy at Richmond Associates, for a confidential conversation on 020 3617 9240 or see richmond-associates.com/job/the-rep-director-of-fundraising/ for more information.
