Association of British Orchestras

Development and Membership Manager

Music at Oxford £45,000-£50,000 Closing date 19 June 2023
Music at Oxford seeks a full-time Development and Membership Manager to join its small but dynamic team.

Music at Oxford (MaO) is a concert series embracing a wide range of repertoire and genres to create an annual programme of high-quality performances. We invite internationally renowned musicians to Oxford, and no two years are ever the same. We have been curating and presenting concerts in Oxford for almost 40 years: founded in 1983, our vision of bringing exceptional live music to the city continues to this day, with venues chosen specifically to complement each performance. We aim to provide a platform for new discoveries as well as for more established artists and repertoire. In November 2022 we held our first festival for many years – a week-long celebration of Arvo Pärt. We are now preparing for our 40th anniversary season in 2023-24.


This new, full-time role has been created to help MaO at an exciting time of strategic development. The Development and Membership Manager will play a pivotal role in leading our fundraising strategy, developing and growing our supporter base, and building enduring relationships with key donors. They will be a passionate advocate for MaO and a committed member of the team, living within an easily commutable distance for both regular team meetings in Oxford and regular donor meetings in Oxfordshire and beyond as required.
