Fundraising Executive – Individual Giving

£27,383 + benefits

Birmingham B5 4TB

A great theatre needs great people.  We can only thrive by having the right team on board in a fast-paced, constantly changing, creative workplace.

About Us

Presenting the best in musical theatre, ballet and opera, dance, drama, comedy and pantomime, we work successfully with some of the world’s biggest international producers.  With our resident partners Birmingham Royal Ballet and DanceXchange; with collaborators such as Welsh National Opera and Sadler’s Wells; and with names like Cameron Mackintosh, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Qdos Pantomimes, and the National Theatre dull moments don’t get a look in.

Average annual paid attendance of over half a million theatre-goers underlines our claim to be the UK’s busiest and most popular single theatre.  We are managed by a voluntary board of Trustees as an independent charity with no revenue subsidy from the public purse.  In our main auditorium or Patrick Studio, in our conference spaces or restaurant, and in schools and communities, we make sure that everyone is welcome, we settle for nothing but the best and we bring flair to everything we do.

About The Role

You will develop your knowledge through designing and delivering effective fundraising plans for all aspects of Individual Giving and Public Campaigns as part of our Fundraising Strategy and broader strategic plan. As part of a committed team you will collaborate with colleagues to feed into and support the delivery of compelling fundraising propositions. This will include responding to national opportunities such as The Big Give as well as linking into our own projects and programmes. You will also manage our Patrons Scheme, including devising a strategy for growth, overseeing the renewals process and building lasting relationships. You will increase your expertise further by supporting our Friends Membership Scheme and working on its potential to seed Patrons and Donors as well as by delivering an events programme. You will produce key marketing and communications materials too. Important will be the ability to produce work that complies with statutory and Hippodrome requirements.

You will have operated in a similar fundraising role and gained a good understanding of current fundraising best practice and legislation, including GDPR. An industry qualification would be highly valued. You will also possess a record of successfuly generating income from individuals and achieving targets. You will have been involved in producing persuasive marketing communications and successful events too.

Comfortable prioritising multiple projects, you will have strong communication and presentation skills as well as being a competent IT user, including CRM systems. You will also be able to demonstrate an active interest in the arts and charity fundraising.
