Fundraising & Development Leadership Opportunities
c. €70,000

We are seeking exceptional fundraising and business development talent, individuals with a passion for film, music or the visual arts and capable of contributing to shaping and then implementing development strategies.

The RAISE project
RAISE is a programme, funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, to increase the fundraising capacity of selected arts organisations. Seven projects have been supported based on their potential and commitment to raise over €250,000 annually from philanthropic sources. Galway Arts Festival and Na Píobairí Uilleann have completed their resourcing and are moving to implementation of their development strategies. We are now immediately recruiting for the Irish Film Institute, National Chamber Choir and Wexford Festival Opera.

The roles
These new Fundraising and Development roles will each play a key role as part of the participating organisations’ management team. The principle objective of each position is to broaden the funding base through donations and sponsorship. There will be an emphasis on building patron schemes, engaging trusts, foundations and other grant making bodies, and maximizing the success of the members programs.

General requirements:
• ability to work at a strategic level in an organisation and meet specific fundraising targets
• ability to shape and define organisational processes and systems
• ability to manage high-level donor relationship cultivation

Candidates will have a love of film, visual arts, or music and believe in their central role in advancing Irish culture. Perhaps you have had a long held wish to apply your professional skills to a leading arts organisation in an impactful role that develops engagement, relationships and support.
