Head of Development – The Marlowe Theatre
Salary: £38,930 per annum
Permanent – Full time (40 hours per week)
The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury is one of this country’s most successful large-scale independent theatres, with a 1,200-seat Main House, a 150-seat Studio and The Marlowe Kit, an 800 year-old building which we plan to transform into a learning centre and heritage experience.
We present a year-round programme of national touring productions across a range of artforms including theatre, dance, opera and music. Since becoming a self-funding independent charitable trust in 2018 we have begun to develop a more mixed economy, with a 5-year plan to commission and produce work at all scales alongside the presented programme. Supporting artists and developing the creative lives of the next generation are central to our mission to be the engine house for the performing arts in our region and to shape the spirit of Kent.
We are seeking a dynamic, ambitious and strategically-focused Head of Development to identify and secure strategic funding opportunities, develop new prospects and build on the success of our membership schemes.
You will have the drive and confidence to cultivate relationships with government bodies and regional policymakers as well as more traditional arts funders. You will also have an impressive track record in running membership programmes, individual giving campaigns and corporate membership initiatives.
Deadline for applications: Sunday 19 September
