Job Description

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain is seeking a Development Manager, Trusts to join our ambitious and growing Development Team.

The successful candidate will be an entrepreneurial and organised individual with exceptional relationship management and writing skills.

Over the last decade, NYO has evolved from a 70-year-old training orchestra into a vibrant community of young people making orchestral music relevant to youth audiences. Our young people have stepped off the orchestra platform and given their time, shared their passion and their skills with other young people. This process has empowered and fulfilled them and catalysed a golden era of music making.

NYO's new 'Open Up' strategy has a strong focus on youth voice, creativity and inclusion. Our goal is to reach every teenager in the UK, and raise a considerable, and sustainable income to enable this to happen.

We believe there is huge scope to grow NYO's mature and loyal portfolio of Trusts and Foundations over the next five years. The Development Manager, Trusts will organise, timetable, grow relationships creatively and prepare excellent written proposals and reports. They will work with our Senior Management Team, Board and Development Board to grow the trust portfolio from £500k to £1m annually.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and growing charity, which recently won Best Supporter Experience at the Institute of Fundraising Awards, and the Inclusivity Award at the UK Youth Inspiring Hope Awards.
