The Guildhall School of Music & Drama is
a vibrant, international community of young musicians, actors and theatre
technicians in the heart of the City of London. Founded in 1880, and located
within the Barbican complex, the Guildhall School sits at the heart of one of
London’s most dynamic cultural areas. We produce outstanding graduates – from
Daniel Craig to Bryn Terfel, Jodie Whittaker to Alison Balsom - whose talents
light up stages and concert platforms throughout the world.
This is an exciting time to join the
Guildhall School, with the founding of Culture Mile - a major destination for
culture and creativity - and significant investment having been made in the
School’s Development and Alumni Relations team.
We are looking for an experienced, confident
and talented Development Manager to initiate and maintain long-term
relationships with a portfolio of prospects and to secure transformational
gifts in support of the Guildhall School and its work developing these
outstanding young artists.
The successful candidate will have
substantial experience of major gift fundraising and meeting personal income
targets, as well as having excellent interpersonal and communications skills,
plus the ability to manage multiple projects and deadlines.
