VACANCY: Fundraising Manager

Could you help us grow our family of supporters and develop a creative and engaging international programme of fundraising events?

‘The Leeds’ is one of the world’s leading music competitions. We are proud to discover, launch and champion the very finest young pianists. We are also passionate about the power of the piano to enhance people’s lives and we create enriching and impactful artistic programmes which have young talent at their heart.

We are excited to be seeking an exceptional individual to join our small and dedicated team in this new role, as we expand to meet the needs of our growing charity. You will help us grow our family of supporters and use your creativity to devise a suite of enticing offers, campaigns and events to engage donors at all levels. This will involve collaboration with partners in the wider Leeds region and our sister cities of London, Berlin, Singapore and New York.

You will be responsible for our membership programmes (<£10k donations) and lead on their administration, communications and development. You will support the Senior Leadership Team in the day to day stewardship of major high net worth donors, trusts and foundations and corporate partners, as well in the administration of our Fundraising Campaign Board. This will include establishing systems to ensure the highest quality experience for all our donors, focusing on the personal approach which has become a hallmark of our Competition.

We very much look forward to welcoming the successful candidate to join our friendly team based at the University of Leeds, a world-leading university and principal partner of the Competition.
