Our Development Manager is responsible for nurturing and growing relationships with Scottish Ensemble’s network of supporters – individuals, trusts / foundations and corporate, and ensuring that we meet associated income targets.

The successful candidate will be working as part of a small, collaborative, non-hierarchical and creative team, each of whom plays a crucial role in realising the ambitions of the organisation.

We are looking for someone who identifies with and is excited by Scottish Ensemble’s mission and philosophy. You will be an exceptional communicator, be that verbally or written, and someone with a strong track record both in stewarding existing donor relationships but also in identifying and cultivating new ones. You will be adept at matching an array of different artistic plans to donor interests, ensuring that both parties benefit from the relationship. You will be a creative and fast thinker, someone who excels in a role that is both strategic and practical, and someone who is prepared to contribute more widely than simply within the confines of this role description – happy to bring to the team ideas and suggestions that benefit all areas of the organisation’s work.

If you are excited by this opportunity, we look forward to hearing from you.
