The Corn Exchange seeks to appoint a Development Manager to join the Trust’s Management Team and lead on fundraising for all of the organisation’s activities.
This is a new role for the Trust and a great opportunity for someone who wants to take the next step and to see the impact of their fundraising shape the future success of the organisation. From 2015 the Corn Exchange will become one of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio Organisations, so this is a chance to join the team at the start of the journey and play a major role in the Trust’s development.
Trust and Foundation giving will be a key area of your expertise and you will have lots of creative ideas for how to maximise and secure potential giving from a wide range of sources. It goes without saying that you’ll be passionate and knowledgeable about the arts, and you’ll almost certainly be working in fundraising for an arts organisation or museum at the moment. Perhaps you’re a key member of a fundraising team looking to move into a leadership role or you might already be managing all the fundraising for a smaller company and looking to make the move to larger organisation.
Based in the market town of Newbury, just an hour from London yet within the heart of rural West Berkshire the Corn Exchange is a thriving arts organisation at the centre of its community and prides itself on the quality and breadth of its work.
