Association of British Orchestras

Trust & Foundations Officer

Scottish Ensemble 24,000 Closing date 22 September 2022
Scottish Ensemble is currently seeking two passionate and meticulous individuals to form part of our external relations team – a Trusts & Foundations Officer and a Marketing Officer.

These new positions give prospective candidates the opportunity to work full-time in a busy, creative and boundary-pushing arts organisation. Scottish Ensemble looks to lead the sector in terms of innovation in classical music presentation and production, and to develop new ways for classical music to connect with and inspire diverse audiences. In addition to acclaimed cross-artform projects, breathtaking performances and innovative digital output, we develop projects which specifically look to enhance well-being and improve mental health for a range of vulnerable individuals and communities, including those dealing with pain, the New Scots community, and young people at particularly pressured periods of their school careers.

Our Trusts & Foundations Officer will work collaboratively with the rest of Scottish Ensemble’s administrative team - from our base in the creative hub of Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts - to develop compelling projects plans and robust impact evaluation which will inspire funders to support our work. Our Chief Executive will manage and support you to create effective application and reporting schedules and plans, as well as to research new income generation opportunities, while the day-to-day running of these systems and writing processes will be your responsibility.

We currently aim to raise around £100,000 per year from trusts and have ambitions to grow this area of income.

Whatever your experience, we are looking for motivated individuals who are inspired by Scottish Ensemble’s mission and philosophy and who are able to capture and translate this excitement to funders, via exceptional written and interpersonal communication skills, and a meticulous eye for detail.

You might currently be working in a directly relevant role in another arts organisation, or you might have the skills required but be working in another sector. At Scottish Ensemble, you’ll have the chance to develop both specific skills involved in this role, but also wider arts administration experience through close collaboration with our small, friendly and creative team and regular training opportunities.

Salary: £24,000/annum
