Forgan Arts Centre (FAC) is seeking to recruit an exceptional candidate to the new role of Funding Development Officer. The post is funded via the Strengthening Communities Programme from the Scottish Government which is administered by the Development Trusts Association of Scotland.

FAC is looking for an individual with relevant and proven experience in researching, preparing, and submitting funding applications and fundraising, preferably in the creative and arts sectors. You will have current understanding of the funding environment with relevance to these industries and the third sector. The role requires a candidate with the ability to also develop an ambitious Fundraising Programme to support Forgan Arts Centre Business Plans following its recent relocation into larger premises. FAC is now able to expand its arts & crafts programme of activities to develop the increased income streams required to ensure a sustainable future for the centre while delivering maximum benefit to the community.

A key element of the role will be in ensuring community engagement and involvement in fulfilling the remit and enabling us to build capacity. It is expected that this post would become self-sustaining after the three-year period of funding through successful achievements in this strategic role. This is an exciting opportunity to join the Forgan Arts Centre Team, working with the Management Committee, in its next phase of development and expansion, taking our organisation forwards, building upon the success and recognition achieved to date.
