Trusts and Foundations Officer - 21 hours per week (0.6) FTE

BRIT School for Performing Arts and TechnologyCroydon

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the school’s Development Team. Working closely with the Trusts & Foundations Manager, the Trusts & Foundations Officer will be supporting the growth of The BRIT School’s funding from grant-making institutions.

The Development Team at The BRIT School is small but highly experienced – from having worked in award-winning not-for-profits to national arts centres - consisting of the Director of Development, Development Manager (Corporate), Trusts and Foundations Manager (freelance) Corporate Partnerships Officer, Philanthropy Officer and Development Administrator, with a supportive Leadership Team and Board of Trustees.

This is a brilliant and exciting moment to join The BRIT School team, as we bounce back from the pandemic, build on the momentum we have generated from the past 18 months, and launch a new fundraising drive.

This position is a very important role within the organisation, and sits at the heart of the School’s ability to realise its ambitious plans; you will be at the centre of our efforts to #keepBRITspecial. We are looking for someone who has a clear passion for the ethos, impact and ambition of The BRIT School. Being a small team, we will be working closely but you will have the autonomy, responsibility and freedom to bring your own creativity, drive and skills to the role, and to make an impact not only on our fundraising ambitions, but on the lives of the young artists we support.

We would welcome candidates who are looking to move into Trusts & Foundations fundraising from other fundraising backgrounds , as well as those at the start of their fundraising careers.

Days of work are flexible with an opportunity for  some working from home. 

The BRIT School is a unique institution offering specialist education in the arts and related technologies, alongside the full range of academic subjects.  It is sponsored by the British Record Industry and has a unique relationship with the performing arts industries.

The Brit School runs a 5 Term academic year with some school holidays falling at different times to the usual Local Authority school breaks.  Please see our website for further details of our term dates.
