The Old Vic is London’s independent not-for-profit theatre, a world leader in creativity and entertainment. We hold the belief that theatre needs to be cherished, supported and shared with as many people as possible. Our 1000 seats are yours from £10 a ticket. Our productions are diverse, adventurous, new, exciting. Our education and talent programmes allow students to explore and artists of tomorrow to create. Our building is open and alive, day and night. Our theatre is yours.
We are looking for an experienced and confident Head of Philanthropy who will assume responsibility for major gifts and work within a wider Individual Giving team of four. The Head of Philanthropy plays a pivotal role in the fundraising function at The Old Vic, together with the Individuals team, raising £1million a year in vital revenue income for the theatre, in addition to generating income for our ongoing capital campaign, with a focus on soliciting five and six-figure gifts from major donors. You will help to develop existing support, expand our prospect pipeline and build valuable relationships with high net worth individuals whilst maintaining the highest level of donor stewardship for current supporters in order to meet your own income targets and those of the team.
If you are a creative thinker with a proactive, enthusiastic and strategic approach to development, a warm and approachable fundraising manner, along with a passion for theatre, then this is the role for you.
