The role coordinates all types of fundraising including statutory, philanthropic, private sector, trusts, mass audience and Friends. The applicant must have a track record of developing successful multi-year funding partnerships and hitting agreed targets, and have the confidence and humility to work with a well networked Board of Trustees and a small clutch of high net worth supporters. A love of Baroque music and a working knowledge of fundraising specific to the Arts are desirable, though not essential.

As well as excellent verbal and communication skills, a good level of computer literacy is expected. Because LNM promotes remote working the successful candidate is expected to work from home and to maintain an appropriate computer network to participate with others.

There is an equivalent full time fee of between £30-45k, pro rata depending on experience. We envisage this could be a full or part time role. LNM is committed to equal opportunities employment.
