A4D announces new job opportunity – Development Manager

New role – Arts 4 Dementia Development Manager – full or part time

An exciting career development opportunity for an enthusiastic, energetic and well organised individual to join our team as Development Manager, reporting directly to our Chief Executive.  This is a new, pivotal role with significant responsibility and opportunity for growth for the right candidate.

We are looking for someone with proven strong fundraising and donor cultivation skills to assist the Chief Executive with funding applications, individual giving and events.

Enhancing the quality of life through artistic engagement for people in the early stages of dementia for whom provision is poor, and working with leading arts organisations, A4D has a small and enthusiastic team, a talented and able Board of Trustees – and truly inspirational beneficiaries.

Funders.  A4D meets the criteria for support of a number of Trusts and Foundations.  Funders include City Bridge Trust, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Garfield Weston Foundation, Headley Trust (Sainsbury family trust) and four of the Top 10 City Livery Companies.

Full or part time: While we are looking for someone to work full-time, for the right candidate, we would consider a part time engagement of 4 or possibly 3 days per week.

  • Salary: £26,000 – £30,000 pa (pro rata if part time) dependent on experience.
  • Reporting to: Chief Executive.
  • Location: A4D offices at Phoenix Yard, a 200-year old former brewery, 10 minutes’ walk from Kings Cross.
