The Royal Albert Hall is seeking a motivated Philanthropy Coordinator with experience in fundraising and writing applications, to assist and contribute to our successful Philanthropy team.

The Philanthropy Coordinator will have a focus on lower-level fundraising, particularly from Trusts and Foundations. They will also coordinate public fundraising campaigns, liaise with other teams in the organisation and carry out administration for the wider Philanthropy team.

The Philanthropy team is responsible for raising significant funds in support of our Grade I listed building, our charitable objectives, major capital campaigns and our world-class public engagement programme. As the Royal Albert Hall emerges from the pandemic, having foregone £60m in income and taken on £20m in debt from the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund, there is an urgent need to recover our finances with a focus on raising voluntary income to secure the future of the Royal Albert Hall.

Philanthropy is central to the Hall’s operations (and now also to its recovery); the Philanthropy Coordinator is expected to seek out, research and identify new funding sources, maintain and build relationships with supporters, carry out work on our database and drive forward new and existing public appeals. There is an expectation that the successful candidate will contribute towards increasing philanthropic income and work towards achieving defined targets and objectives.

An understanding of fundraising is essential, preferably focused on Trusts & Foundations and Public Campaigns. The Philanthropy Coordinator will also work closely with other Hall teams, including Marketing and Communications, Finance, Engagement, and Front of House.

The successful candidate will demonstrate experience in writing compelling funding applications, working as part of a team and carrying out general administration.

Please note that due to operational and rostering limitations, the Hall is not able to accommodate any new arrangements for holding more than one position. Therefore if you currently work at the Hall and are successful in being recruited for this role, you would be unable to continue working in your existing role.

The closing date for all applications is midday on Monday 2 August 2021.

First stage interviews will take place on 5 August, and second stage interviews will take place on 10 August 2021.
