The LSO Development Department raise over £3 million per year in support of the organisation’s activities both in the UK and internationally. With ambitious plans to grow income over the coming three years, we are looking to appoint a skilled and self-motivated Trusts and Foundations Co-ordinator to play a key role within an expanded and newly re-structured trusts and foundations team. Working closely with the Trusts and Foundations Manager and Head of Strategic Funding, the Trusts and Foundations Co-ordinator will support the implementation of the trusts and foundations strategy – researching potential funders, writing compelling funding proposals, stewarding current supporters, and supporting the evaluation and reporting for projects that have been funded. Excellent writing skills and a passion for engaging written copy are essential, as is an interest in music education and the engagement of people of all ages and backgrounds in the work of the Orchestra.

Joining the LSO at an exciting time in the organisation’s history, the Trusts and Foundations Co-ordinator will play a central role in securing the ongoing sustainability of the LSO’s pioneering education and community programme, LSO Discovery. As part of an expanded team, the Trusts and Foundations Co-ordinator will also support the wider fundraising of the Development Department, helping to steward current and potential supporters at concerts, special events, and LSO Discovery projects taking place across east London.

Led by Music Director Sir Simon Rattle, the LSO is one of the world’s leading orchestras, presenting over 70 concerts in London each year through its residency at the Barbican. The LSO is set apart from other international orchestras by the strength of its commitment to music education, reaching over 60,000 people annually through its award-winning education and community programme, LSO Discovery. The LSO also manages its own record label (LSO Live), leads boundary-pushing initiatives in the field of digital engagement (LSO Play), and runs its own venue and music education centre at the heart of its inner-London community (LSO St Luke’s).
