Role

Are you gifted at gaining support from trusts and foundations for good causes?

Are you passionate about the arts?

We are seeking a dynamic individual to work closely with our Head of Development to drive forward the company’s revenue and capital fundraising strategies, with a specific focus on achieving income targets for trusts and foundations. You will be joining one of Scotland’s leading theatre companies at a vital and exciting chapter in its history as an extensive £21.5m redevelopment of the Citizens Theatre gets underway.
