We are recruiting a Trusts and Foundations Manager to join our talented Development team.
The Development Department is the fundraising function of the National. Its aim is to raise essential funds for the theatre from individuals, corporations and charitable trusts and foundations to enable the theatre to carry out its mission and plan for the future.

The Development Department consists of thirty-two staff split across five teams: Corporate Development, Trusts and Foundations, Individual Giving, Major Gifts and Development Operations.
The Trusts and Foundations team raises approximately £1.8m from trusts, foundations and other grant-making organisations. The Trusts and Foundations Manager plays a key part in this team and the successful candidate will manage and grow a portfolio of Trust supporters that donate towards a range of innovative and impactful programmes and initiatives at the NT.
