Development Officer

The Place, London’s creative powerhouse for dance development, has been leading the way in dance training, creation and performance for 50 years. In a changing landscape, our vision for the future is steadfast: we are powering imagination through dance, championing new ideas, embracing risks and creating optimal conditions for dance artists and enthusiasts to realise their full potential.

We are now looking to appoint a Development Officer to support the delivery of transformational change in our fundraising activities in order to secure The Place’s position as a vital part of the international dance ecology for the next 50 years.

As Development Officer, you will work with the Director of Development to meet annual fundraising targets. You will lead on the coordination of supporter cultivation and steward events, support the submission of grant applications and report to funders. You will also be responsible for helping to raise the profile of the team across the organisation, managing the fundraising database and will be the first point of contact for enquiries.

This is an exciting opportunity for a committed and enthusiastic individual who is looking to take the next step in their fundraising career. The ideal candidate will have professional experience in a fundraising environment and be an excellent communicator with an interest in the arts or education. A keen attention to detail, excellent planning and organisational and IT skills are also essential.

If you possess these skills and share our interest and enthusiasm for the performing arts, we would love to hear from you.
