As award-winners and leaders in their fields; actors, directors, writers, lighting, sound and costume designers, scenic artists, stage managers, their diverse community makes a significant contribution to the creative industries globally.
Like many organisations, RADA has been significantly impacted by Covid-19 in 2020 and last year, they launched Stage Critical, a four-year campaign to raise £3.2m to strengthen and future-proof their work. The Academy is therefore seeking a new Senior Development Manager – Individuals to join them.
Reporting to the Head of Development, the Senior Development Manager – Individuals will play a critical role in building relationships with individual supporters, and review and enhance the existing regular giving schemes to develop attractive pathways towards their major gifts programme. Supported by a Development Manager, you will have experience of securing donations from individuals and/or members, and delivering excellent stewardship that engages and retains supporters. Your ability to build relationships and engage supporters, and your demonstrably excellent interpersonal skills will underpin your success in this role.
In return, you will have ample opportunity for progression, exposure to campaign fundraising and direct appeals, as well as strategic philanthropy. At an exciting time for RADA, under a new Principal Niamh Dowling and new Chair Marcus Ryder MBE, to deliver a vision for the future of a world leading academy in dramatic arts training, this is a great opportunity for an ambitious individual to take a step-up.
