Cathedral Music Trust (CMT) is a charity which supports and promotes sacred choral music. We do this by campaigning on behalf of cathedral music and musicians, giving grants to cathedral choirs and choristers in need, and encouraging the pursuit of excellence in choral and organ music. The Trust is a newly formed charity, incorporating the Friends of Cathedral Music and the Diamond Fund for Choristers. We have ambitious plans to invigorate and expand our operations as the leading source of support for cathedral music through advocacy, education and grant-giving. We are especially committed to enabling children from a diverse range of backgrounds to experience the many benefits that come from being a chorister.
We want to appoint a permanent, part time Development Director. You will be responsible for developing and implementing the Trust's strategic plan to raise funds. You will manage our fundraising initiatives and our communications with current and prospective donors and supporters. You will report to the Trust's Chair, working closely with the Chair of the Development Committee and the Operations Director.
We are looking for someone who is a successful fundraiser, with a minimum of two years' experience in fundraising. You are energetic, self-motivated and proactive, with outstanding written, oral and interpersonal skills and excellent organisational and time management skills. You can demonstrate an ability to develop and maintain strong working relationships with trustees, donors, supporters and volunteers. You are IT competent and familiar with customer relationship management systems for non-profits. You have experience in communications, especially social media. You have an interest in sacred choral music.
