Trusts and Foundations Manager

The Philharmonia has developed strong, long-term relationships with a significant number of trusts and foundations who fund pioneering work across our education programme, digital programme, the regional and residencies programme, the Music of Today series and other strategic priorities. We are now at an exciting stage to build on this success and are recruiting a Trusts & Foundations Manager to secure grants for the Orchestra’s core work, education and digital programme and for specific projects. Working closely with the Development Director and Director of Education, you will develop and implement our trust and foundations fundraising strategy.

Coming from a background in trust fundraising, you will bring a track record of cultivating trusts and foundations in order to secure charitable gifts. You will be able to work independently as well as collegiately and will bring a thoughtful and considered approach to the fundraising strategy in this area. You will be able to identify opportunities for funding and bring confidence and experience in developing a robust pipeline of funders. A passion for the arts and music is very important, as is the ability to work with a range of stakeholders across our charity.

Head of Individual Giving

We are delighted to be recruiting for a new Head of Individual Giving to develop and manage the Individual Giving and Philanthropy strategy at the Philharmonia Orchestra. In particular, the post-holder will work closely with the Development Director to lead on the major gifts programme (£25,000+), implement a higher level within the current Conductor’s Circle Patron’s scheme (£10,000+), as well as maximising income and widening the donor pool for the Conductors’ Circle and the Chair Endowment giving programmes. The postholder will also be responsible for developing and implementing a robust strategy for the Klemperer Society (the Orchestra’s legacy giving programme). The Head of Individual Giving will manage the Friends and Online Giving Manager, overseeing the strategy to increase income and membership of the Friends scheme, including its annual events programme.

Coming from a background of high-level fundraising, you will also bring experience of implementing a prospecting and stewardship strategy within an annual events programme, as well as a passion for the arts and music.
